It’s so difficult to find the right time and place to teach your preteen about growing up, making wise moral choices, and putting Christ first in everything! Because we realize the difficulty of growing up in today’s world, the Preteen Ministry of Putnam City Baptist Church is offering a one day conference on Saturday, February 23, for 5th and 6th graders and a parent or adult (preferably a same gender adult) who is active in their everyday life.
Our format is designed to open doors of communication between Dad and son, Mom and daughter. Experienced, godly teachers will guide us through the day providing information from a Biblical view. Our teaching draws from many sources and covers a variety of timely subjects. Male and female preteens will be meeting separately during teaching sessions. There will be times that parents will have their own sessions, but during the majority of the day you will be with your child.
Let me encourage you to set aside busy schedules and make this day a priority for you and your preteen. They grow up so quickly...we must make time to invest in their lives! Our prayer is that when you finish the day together, deeper bonds will have formed between you and the preteen in your life so when those bumpy times come (and they will come!) a foundation of trust will carry you through.
