In order for a Christian to faithfully respond to the challenging topics of sexuality and gender, one must engage and understand Scripture’s teaching on these matters. This two-part course will help to increase the Church’s understanding and compassion towards those experiencing same-sex attraction or gender dysphoria, so all may be cared for in love and truth. We will create space for Christians to learn and talk about these challenging topics together, so that voices may be heard, questions addressed, and the Church encouraged to live faithfully today.

Registration includes lunch on Saturday. Limited childcare for this event is available for those who register by December 27. Scholarships are available. Contact Kathy Hare (KHare@StAndrews.Church or 843.284.4316).
