Sunday, October 21, 9:45-10:45 am, Room 213 (Sunday School is extended to 10:45)
At Rise and Shine Movement, we know no one wants to think about sexual abuse prevention, let alone talk to their kids about it. It’s a delicate subject. You should feel confident you’ve done everything you can to protect those who matter to you most because talking about sexual abuse is easier than you think. Start the conversation with your child today! Join us.
