CREATED BY GOD

January 26
Each year Roswell Kids offers a human sexuality workshop for our fifth graders. We will 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 that your fifth graders have scientifically accurate and Biblically-based information on these important topics.

This event will take place on Sunday, Jan. 26 from 12 – 6:30 p.m. Roswell Kids staff will lead the workshop. Adult and teen mentors will lead small groups and table discussions. There will be mini-breaks throughout the day and a long game break to help with the seriousness of the topic. We ask that parents join us at 6 p.m. for dinner and a devotional as we wrap up our time together.

Cost is $40 which includes lunch, dinner as a family, take-home participant book, goody bag, and supplies. Scholarships are available if needed. Parents are required to attend one of the parent information meetings. Join us on Sunday, Jan. 12 from 12 – 1:30 p.m. in the Trinity Café (lunch and childcare provided) or Wednesday, Jan. 15 from 6 – 7p.m. in the Trinity Café (Childcare provided)
