Church is a great place to be for all ages, and it is cheap! If you want your kids involved in something that is not 75+ dollars a month, church is the place to be! Many churches have great youth programs and sunday school classes, free informal classes, free children’s and adult choirs, free childcare during church events, free events like carnivals and concerts, and free or low cost Vacation Bible Schools. Church can also be a great place to build lasting friendships. The guy you met in the pew on Sunday morning is likely to be more financially and emotionally responsible than the one you met in the bar at 2 am.
Creed and Casting Crowns are popular Christian bands. My favorite is Slow Fade by Casting Crowns.
