Attention Parents of 5th and 6th Grade Students
On January 5th,6th, & 7th, we will offer the “Created By God” human sexuality workshop. The workshop is a comprehensive look at human sexuality, values and relationships and is taught in a frank, honest and Bible-based manner. This class will be specifically designed for 5th and 6th grade students. Students are welcome to invite their friends to register.
The workshop will:
- Affirm growth and change as part of God’s plan for life
