Straight Talk for Tweens will be held on October 23 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in Room 250 at Crossings OKC. This class is designed especially for 5th through 7th graders and teaches God’s plan for puberty and sexuality. There is no charge for this class, and a snack will be served!
Tweens will check-in at the station outside Room 250 at Crossings OKC and will then go to their assigned classroom. Classes, separated by both age and gender, are taught by medical professionals from within Crossings Community Church. The class curriculum designed for the 5th graders is less in-depth/mature than the class curriculum designed for the 6th-7th grade students.
There is an optional parent informational meeting from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in Room 250. Please be aware that this meeting will not be appropriate for younger children, and childcare is not provided so please plan accordingly.
Register online now! (Registrations are also accepted on the day of the event.) Please arrive early to check in.
In order to reinforce parents’ teachings on sexuality, we offer Straight Talk for Tweens to 5th-7th grade students. Your tween will learn biblical truths as we help them understand the puzzling changes that lie ahead.
Our goal is to form a Christian foundation to help children understand God’s purpose in creating their bodies and make godly decisions about what they may face in the coming years before marriage. Research suggests that adolescents with a strong personal faith are less likely to be sexually active.
