Children’s Ministries directors in conferences across America are hearing the same complaint from parents: Sabbath School is confusing their kids’ knowledge of the Bible.
“I’m no Ellen White basher but it’s not cool that my 4-year-old thinks Ellen White helped Moses gather animals into the Ark,” said Liz Carson who claims her daughter picked up this muddied knowledge from what Carson calls “free-for-all felt board time every week in Sabbath School.”
“Left unsupervised, kids are coming up with all kinds of weird narratives during felts time,” said North American Division Children’s Ministries Director, John Billings. “Kids are naturally creative and that’s a good thing. But you’ve got to give them some direction.”
Billings is calling for a comprehensive review of the state of cradle roll felt board time to crack down on negligent Sabbath School teachers. “You gotta bring your A-game to Cradle Roll on Sabbath morning,” said Billings. “If you want to slack then volunteer to be a parking attendant. Nobody listens to them anyway.”
