Parents and grandparents face questions about gender and sexuality in ways most of us are unprepared to handle. Patti Height from Out of Egypt ministries will be joining us to give her testimony on Sunday, February 5th, at church.

Additionally, she will join us in a parent/grandparent forum on Tuesday, February 7, to help prepare us to have conversations around gender that are informed and filled with grace, love, and truth. The Tuesday forum has a $10 charge. Light sweets & snacks, and beverages will be provided at the Tuesday Forum.

What Will Not Happen At This Event

  • We will not end the evening, and we all agree on everything.
  • It is unlikely that we will all share our opinions and everyone will hold hands and sing Kumbaya.
  • This is not an event where we secretly try to indoctrinate you into our beliefs.

What Will Happen At This Event

  • Your questions will be accepted and appreciated regardless of what your opinion is.
  • We will attempt to have an open and honest discussion about these issues in an environment of grace.
  • We have invited experts to participate in our discussion because they have more experience dealing with these issues.  Even so, you don’t have to agree with them.
  • If the discussion becomes difficult and awkward, there will still be snacks at the end!
