It seems like they love drama. Rather than either getting you to pick him up before church or dropping him home on the way, they have chosen to make themselves the martyrs that have missed church bc of some heathen that couldn't have the respect to pick her son up.
I admit, I'm in no way religious, but I find the whole idea of listening to the service on their phone overkill and kind of strange? but to me it was done to highlight to their church members and maybe to you (since she told your DS straight out it was your fault they didn't attend) how desperately they want to be there and how much you put them out. Again, drama.
I personally wouldn't allow my child to associate with them anymore. They could have easily still got to church by calling you or dropping him home, but instead chose to go the drama filled route.

We had a neighbour very similar to the woman you have described. Oh the drama. Not worth it. And look, even if it is a miscommunication, once a child is involved and takes on negative emotions due to their actions and no fault of his own then the gloves come off. I wouldn't be sending him there again and not because I'd have the sh*ts on about her behaviour, I'd be genuinely concerned about how my child was being supervised and treated while I was not there. No, I don't think you're overreacting at all.

I kept asking DH why I was letting it get to me so much. It seems silly to be thinking about it so much but it's because the blame was placed on us. I can't get over the blame shifting onto someone else. But then that seems like her way.
I haven't talked to her yet today. I've not long gotten up. I'll just send her a txt asking if her DS is ok and see what she says.
