West End United Methodist Church

Wonderfully Made Weekend 2022

Wonderfully Made (formally Created by God) is a human sexuality workshop designed for tweens and young teens by the United Methodist Church. This seminar offers both you and your child the opportunity to learn, grow, and celebrate the fact that all of us have been wonderfully created by God and are called to responsible living as sexual beings. This fall we are partnering with Crievewood UMC to participate in a Wonderfully Made Workshop.  The event will be held at West End UMC.

After talking with all the pastors involved and a few families, we decided to offer this class for current 5th-8th graders because we know some older kids may have missed out during the pandemic. 

We recognize the large age gap between 5th and 8th grade, but we will be separating them by age into small groups, though some things will be done all together. We do plan to off this again next year, so if you want to wait with your 5th grader that is perfectly fine.

  • Thursday, September 22 // on Zoom // 7:00-8:00 p.m. // Parent Info Session
