Shepherding, Safety, and Sexuality: Parent and Leader Lunch 2019
Each August, we hope to gather parents and children/youth volunteers to engage victories and challenges in caring for the next generation.
This year our topic is Safety and Sexuality:
- What is Redeemer doing to ensure the safety of our Children and Youth during church functions?
- Though we praise God that nothing has been reported, how would Redeemer respond if abuse were to happen under our watch?
- What are some resources I can use to talk about sexuality with my children, and what is age appropriate?
- What do I need to know about the technology and content my children are able access, and what can I do to help set appropriate boundaries for them and our whole family?
