God’s Creation, God’s Design Workshop
August 20, 2022 | 8:30 am - 12:30 pm
Church Life, Family Life
We live in a world that is changing at a record pace.
You can watch the four sessions from this event here.
Perspectives that would have been broadly unthinkable only a few years ago have become more mainstream in our time. Are biological sex and gender distinct from one another or are they the same? Can a person truly change his or her gender? What is happening in our culture related to these matters and how should followers of Jesus respond? This workshop is designed to bring education and clarity from a biblical perspective about the critical issues related to gender, identity and sexuality.
On Saturday, August 20, several speakers will cover topics including:
- What is Gender Confusion & Why is it Happening?
- What is Transgender?
- Understanding the Social Impacts
- A Biblical Response – Truth & Love
- Responding to Those in Your Circles
- Q & A Panel Discussion
Speakers will include Walt Heyer, Maria Kefler and Sharon Supp (bios below). On Sunday, August 21, Pastor Jim will interview Walt Heyer during our services.
The event is free to attend, but registration is required.Register here
