What sect do you recommend and why?
How old are the kidlets, xotoxi? Do you want religious instruction as well as worship?
For very very very bright kidlets, I'd say join a Jewish Reform Temple. If the kidlets are just starting first grade, they'll benefit hugely from learning Hebrew (fabulous language) and the ethics instructions cannot be beat.
If you like good fried chicken, I'd go with the Southern Baptist folks. If somebody dies, or there is a pot luck supper down at the church, you can be sure to get some good fried chicken at one of these events.
Were you raised in a particular religion yourself? If yes, have you considered that religion?
The Presbyterians have the best coffee hour. The Anglican/Episcopals have the best liturgy. The Evangelicals have the best outreach programs. The Catholics have the grandest claims.
i'd say check out as many non-denominational churches as you can find
I go to a Methodist Church and we have a pretty darned good coffee hour after church services on Sunday morning. Good coffee. Home made cookies and sometimes cake. Can catch up on all the latest gossip. Yes, Methodist are allowed to gossip. That's another good thing about the Methodist Church. I betcha our young ladies look better than your average Presbyterians too...
Stay away from the Lutherans....we're heathens.
Garrison Keiller told us all about you Lutheran folks. You might be right.
The non-denominational churches are highly dependent on the personality of the pastor, with no denominational oversight. Sometimes the pastor is a power hungry megalomaniac, unfortunately.
