My family belongs to a great baptist church here in Texas. I would say it is a medium sized church - not too big, but not really small either. We live about 30 minutes away from the church which makes it a little difficult when it comes to being involved. Being a stay at home makes me a minority at my church - there aren't a lot of them.
Because of its size, our distance from the church and the lack of stay at home moms there aren't a lot of programs at our church that are geared towards me, so for the past year or so I have been attending programs at a bigger, closer church. They have a Tuesday morning women's Bible study class which I have been looking forward to all summer long. The past 2 studies I have been a part of have been wonderful - I have learned a lot and plus they have a great class for my daughter to go to while I'm in the study. Also, they have a program once a quarter where moms of older children (mentor moms) get together with moms or younger children and discuss things that are going on. It is great to get advice from wiser moms, but also to hear that I am not alone in my struggles.
My "problem" with attending these things at another church is that I feel like I am cheating on my church. I don't hear of other people at my church going to other programs hosted by another church and I feel as though I have to keep in quiet. My motives aren't wrong in going to these things because I am growing and getting fed and getting together with other ladies, so why do I feel as though I am doing something wrong?
