FAITH & SEXUALITY RETREAT
Faith & Sexuality
Presbytery Retreat for
Middle Schoolers & Parents
Saturday, Feb 22 / 9am-5pm
Montreat, NC
Every other year our presbytery offers a retreat for middle school youth and their parents to facilitate healthy conversations about faith & sexuality.  Our very own Heather Davis is one of the retreat leaders, and it’s a safe place for youth to learn and ask questions about their sexuality rather than looking it up on the internet or asking their friends.

For most families this is not an easy topic to talk about, but is absolutely crucial and you'll be glad you did it here . Many of our FPC families have attended in the past and I'm happy to provide you with their info if you'd like to talk to someone who has attended.

Youth and families are responsible for their own registration ( sign up deadline is Feb 17 ). To read more about the retreat and for a registration form, click below.
PS - If you have a 7 th or 8 th grader, this will be the only time this retreat is offered for them (next retreat won’t be until 2022!).
