The Parenting Workshops

Parenting is hard, and last time we checked kids don't come with instruction manuals. That's why we are excited to seasonally offer free workshops to help equip and support you as parents on how to engage your son or daughter more intentionally around some crucial topics.

 

Upcoming Workshop Info

There are several key topics we believe we need to walk through with our middle and high school students on a regular basis. One such topic is challenging students to navigate relationships and sexuality in a way that honors God. We are living in a world that is presenting (and even promoting) a message to a younger and younger age that says, "You are defined by your relational and sexual pursuits." It’s something we HAVE TO be talking about at home and in the church. As we processed this thought a little more deeply, we asked the question, “What if we created some time and space to have this discussion with and among our parents?”

So we decided to go for it! “Adolescence, Sexuality, and Parenting” is a four-part series that we are going to offer to parents starting Wednesday evening July 5th at 6:30pm in the Lake Park HS: West Campus cafeteria.

It is essential that you are aware of the vital role you play in developing a biblical sexual worldview. We want to help in building this awareness as well as equipping you with some practical ways to nurture a desire for sexual integrity in your students. You can read below for a brief explanation of our specific direction each session:

Session 1/July 5th - The Lay of the Land: What is the current landscape of teen culture with dating, sexuality and sex?

Session 2/July 12th - Pornography & Parent Controls: What is the greatest drug plaguing our culture today, and how do parents fight it?

Session 3/July 26th - Biblical Sex: What if we moved beyond abstinence into a holistic approach to handling dating, sex, and sexuality God's way?

Session 4/August 2nd - The Talk that Needs More Talking: How do we nurture ongoing healthy conversations with our family about sexual integrity?

We hope to see you jump in on this vital conversation.
