What is sexual identity? What is gender identity? What is the difference between the two? In this seminar, our Children’s Ministry and Student Ministries team will equip parents with knowledge to navigate an ever-changing world regarding sex and sexuality. We will share what we have learned from trusted experts. We will also talk about how you can equip your kids to follow Jesus and influence others in a world where more and more kids and teens are identifying as gay, lesbian, transgender, queer, or something else.

During this session we talk about “the talk.” How do you talk with your kids about God’s design for sex? What do you say and at what ages? How do you do it in a way that is not awkward? How many conversations should you have? We’ll discuss all these things and more!

We know our kids are growing up in a screen-saturated world. Kids are asking for phones at younger and younger ages. Licensed mental health therapist Jill Thomas will share how screens can affect kids’ mental health and how you can set up appropriate boundaries for your kids at different ages.
