Churches and Obamacare

As Obamacare looms, I’ve been reading much about how business are cutting employees from full to part-time in order to avoid the enormous health care costs. Some restaurants are even starting to add an Obamacare fee to your bill.

I’ve wondered how this debacle will affect churches. Sure enough, I’m hearing of job reductions and terminations at megachurches. One friend of mine, who works as a secretary at one of the largest churches in the country, recently told me she’d been let go. Her church has also dropped many full time employees to part time, and several of these people had to quit and look elsewhere for full time work.

How is your church handling Obamacare? Have you heard about other churches dropping full time employees? Share your experiences below.
