My Body God's Gift

My Body God's Gift

Age: 5th Grade

God created us as male and female, and God declared us “very good.” Families of 5th graders are celebrating the growth—physically, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually—of these youth and are taking the time to remind them that we love them and travel with them. The milestone gives families a safe place to begin conversations about body image, self-esteem and being God’s creation.  

Milestones are a chance for parents and children to gather and be equipped with faith tools to connect faith with daily life. Milestones are open to the whole community to participate. Ages are suggested but events are open to all who are interested. Parents or caregivers attend each milestone with their child/youth.
