Created in the Image of God: Sexuality & Spirituality 5th gr Retreat
Friday, April 5 & Saturday, April 6
Most parents cringe at the thought of "having the talk," with their child. While the changes we can expect with puberty are natural, it is sometimes hard to broach the topic. Our retreat is designed to:
- share how we are made in God's Image
- take a look at how images of males and females are portrayed in society
- give an introduction to the changes that happen to our bodies and minds during puberty
- provide an opportunity for children to ask questions they have on their minds
We begin the event on Friday with just the 5th graders. We have dinner, games, and a Bible study with our leader Kaye Richard. It continues in the morning with parents meeting with our Pediatrician, Dr. Rachel Weise for a presentation while the children continue with Kaye. It is followed by lunch and time together.
