Children’s Ongoing Events
Created By God Workshop
CUMC invites all 5th and 6th graders and their parents to participate in a very special workshop, “Created By God”. This enormously important seminar focuses on God’s gift of human sexuality from a Christian perspective. There are many layers of purpose to the “Created By God” program, but the main function is to educate children and parents in the godly principles regarding our sexuality and to affirm that growth and change in our bodies is part of God’s perfect and wonderful plan for our lives. The curriculum has been prepared by the United Methodist Church and our presenter has been certified to teach the material.
We offer this workshop 2 times per school year for 5th and 6th graders. Registration is available online before the workshop. Each workshop is limited to 54 children and their parents, so be sure to register early. The registration fee of $55 and covers the workshop, a “Created By God” book, a snack on Friday, and lunch on Saturday. All sessions are held in the main building in room 211. Boys and girls are together in the same room. Visitors are welcome to enroll.
Due to the nature of the material, children are asked to be present for the entire workshop. Please clear their schedules accordingly.
