Created by God

Created by God is the curriculum we are using for a class on Faith and Human Sexuality designed especially for 5th and 6th grade students. The class and curriculum were designed by a United Methodist pastor and have been used extensively around our denomination and for a number of years here at First Church.  

Fifth and Sixth graders are “between” childhood and adolescence. They experience rapid growth physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. The Created by God curriculum seeks to help the adolescent contemplate the issues of maturity, sexuality, intimacy, attraction, and acceptance within a Christian context. 

We are very fortunate to have a member of our church community, Linda Federer, a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, lead these classes. Linda has a great team of leaders who are preparing to help our students learn and understand more about themselves and their bodies.
