Healthy Relationships: Understanding Gender

January 19 we begin a four-week series on Healthy relationships: Understanding Gender. During these weeks the whole church will be attending to ways we nurture healthy relationships. Children will be doing Circle of Grace and youth will join do a combination of joining the adults and having their own discussions.  The following are some related resources:

January 19: What does it mean to be male today?  Exploring New Corners: Let’s Talk Dude. Join us for some conversation and wisdom exchange about how healthy manhood and concepts of masculinity can shape a healthy future and be part of a gender-based violence-reduction plan, as well as how we exist within the church as male allies.
