Dh and I were raised Catholic, had sacraments through confirmation, but were never married in Catholic church (we never really committed to church as adults at that point in our lives); however both our kids were baptized in a Catholic church (also we grew up in a predominantly catholic area).
We moved to a very conservative Christian / baptist type area. We began going to a contemporary Christian church and became very involved and I was baptized there as an adult. Things went downhill when we saw the true motives of this church's leadership, we left and have become very disheartened with this type church.
We have been searching for a home church for some time now. We really feel our children are not getting the spiritual foundation they should be. We agree that a catholic ccd would be good for the children. However, it would be wrong for us to commit to being a 'catholic home' when we are not, just for the kids to be a part of this class.
When we go to Catholic mass, it doesn't feel as beneficial as the Christian churches we've attended ... and it was pretty difficult to made it through the entire mass (I liked having tr kids with us, instead of child care, but it was rough). There was a Christian church we were attending, that we all liked okay, but they started this big marketing thing and it really turned me off.
I would be interested checking out UU, but there is only 1 church and it is quite far away. Just looking for some feedback, or maybe some probing questions that I haven't explored that will help me figure this out. Thanks!!
