“This subject of relationships and sex is of vital importance for our families, and we want to help them navigate this territory,” said Erica Sharp, pastor of Family Ministry at Ginghamsburg Church. “This forum is targeted to parents, teachers and leaders of students grade 6-12, but all are welcome to this free event.”

In addition to the parent/community forum with Hall, students grade 6-12 are invited to RealLove18 Retreat on Saturday, Feb. 17, from 1:30 to 10 p.m. at the Avenue at Ginghamsburg. The retreat will also be led by Hall and will focus on three areas: priorities, healthy dating (dating for marriage) and compromises and guardrails like lusting, pornography and social media. The day will include worship, main sessions and breakout groups by grade and gender.

“This parent forum with Stuart Hall is the third of four opportunities that Ginghamsburg is offering for parents, school and community leaders to gather together to gain valuable insight in raising, guiding and encouraging our students. The topics for the final forum will be racial reconciliation,” said Sharp.

Student Ministry at Ginghamsburg Church is a specially designed place for students grade 6-12 to grow in their relationship with Jesus. Students are met right where they are through powerful worship, engaging teaching and relationship-building moments.

The Orange strategy is used at Ginghamsburg to grow children and teens as champions for Christ. Orange is a nationally known and widely praised curriculum. It is family-friendly and family-focused to drive home key lessons from God’s word through fun and adventure and equips parents to be their children’s primary faith builder all week long.
