Answering Kids’ Tough Questions
May 1 3:30 - 8:00 pm | Capo Beach Church
The past year has made one thing very clear—we live in a culture full of chaos and confusion. And helping our children and students navigate this chaotic culture is more challenging than ever. The confusion abounds. Can boys be girls and girls be boys? Deep down are we all racists? Is the Bible sexist? Is Christianity anti-science? How can a loving God allow suffering? Is our true identity our sexual identity? Does the Christian faith need to change to survive?
Do you have answers to your kids’ most pressing questions? Join us May 1st to explore these tough questions and strengthen your own faith, so you can pass it on to the next generation. Our incredible speakers will equip us with the knowledge and practical tools needed to guide our kids in this chaotic age.
If you’re influencing kids from 0-18 years of age, then this conference is for you. Parents. Grandparents. Youth workers. Homeschoolers. Sunday school teachers. Pastors. Christian educators. If you’re an adult in any position to influence young lives, don’t miss this opportunity to get the training you need.
