January 27: Created by God Workshop 

Each year Roswell Kids offers a human sexuality workshop for our fifth graders. We will be hosting this on Sunday, Jan. 27 from 12 – 6:30 p.m. This will be a time for your fifth graders to discuss and learn about God’s wonderful creation of their bodies, the changes they experience during adolescence, and intimacy with God and with fellow humans. It is important for our fifth graders to have scientifically accurate and Biblically-based information about these topics.

During the day, there will be a long inflatable and game break along with smaller brain breaks. Our Roswell Kids staff will teach the curriculum and adult and teen mentors will help lead small group and table discussions. Boys and girls will be divided by gender during our anatomy and puberty changes session. We ask that parents join us at 6 p.m. for dinner and devotional as we wrap up the day with your kids.

The cost is $40 which includes lunch, dinner for our families, take-home participant books, goody bags, and supplies. Scholarships are available for those that need it. Please contact Lorin Tate, ltate@rumc.com.

There will be two parent information meetings and parents must attend one. You must attend one even if you have an older child who has completed this workshop as we have updated some of the curriculum. Join us on Sunday, Jan. 13 from 12 – 1:30 p.m. in room 246/248 (lunch and childcare provided) or Wednesday, Jan. 16 at 6 – 7 p.m. in the Trinity Cafe (childcare provided). This is a time for parents to hear what your child will be learning, understand how you can be involved, for you to ask questions, and for you to make a final decision on whether you want your child to attend.
