Created by God is a two-day workshop that offers you and your child an opportunity to learn, grow, and celebrate the fact that we have each been wonderfully created by God, and are called to responsible living as sexual beings. Its biblical foundation affirms sexuality as a gift of the God in whose image we have been created – a gift we are to express responsibly. Created by God affirms the family as the source, for most children, of love and guidance. It acknowledges parents as children’s primary sex educators and strives to support parents as they talk with their children and serve as important role models.
Participation in this study will provide basic biological and developmental information, build self-esteem in the students, strengthen communication skills among older elementary girls and boys and between them and their parents, and introduce participants to the fact that their sexuality is an integral part of being human. Students will learn and practice using proper terminology. They will also focus on the real meaning of intimacy – a special closeness or friendship that grows as people get to know and learn to accept one another.
It is mandatory for the success of the curriculum that children attend both the Friday and Saturday seminars and at least one parent is required to participate in the parent portions of the seminar. Please read our FAQ for more information.
Mail or bring complete registration and payment of $50 to the FUMC church office (1201 Lavaca Street, 78701) no later than January 20, 2017. Scholarships are available upon request.
Participation is open to non-members. Sign up with a friend!
