During the past year many people have spoken to me about how meaningful was the service where we sat at table and shared pictures from our life. We will have such an experience again at the end of December. We will sit around tables, enjoy a potluck, and speak about our story through pictures. Thus, I invite you to comb your albums for pictures that speak of significant times in your life. We already have three people who will start the conversation at a given table. If you would like to initiate the discussion at your table, please call the church office.

This ten-workshop curriculum is designed to help children ages nine through twelve to gain the knowledge, life principles, and skills they need to understand and express their sexuality in holistic, life-enhancing ways.
Like the other Our Whole Lives programs for different age groups, this comprehensive, developmentally appropriate program introduces key topics like values, body image, gender and sexual identity, peer pressure, and healthy relationships with sensitivity and inclusiveness.
This updated curriculum introduces new content, activities, perspectives, language, and resources for today's children. New topics include body image, social media/Internet, and consent, as well as an updated and deeper exploration of gender identity and roles. Many of the popular activities and discussion from the first edition are preserved here, alongside newer, more interactive activities.
