Walnut Creek Community Church, 900 64th St. in Windsor Heights, is hosting a free seminar by Josh and Dottie McDowell titled “How to Talk to Your Kids About Sex” on Sunday, Sept. 23 from 6 – 9 p.m.
Josh McDowell once considered himself an agnostic and held the belief that Christianity was worthless. After being challenged to intellectually explore the claims of Christianity, he was overwhelmed by the by the evidence of the reliability of the Christian faith and was forever changed.
Now a world-renown speaker, McDowell has addressed more than 10 million youth, giving 24,000 speeches in 118 different countries. He has authored or co-authored more than 120 books including “More Than A Carpenter” and “New Evidence that Demands a Verdict.”
McDowell will be speaking to parents about discussing the challenging topic of sex and relationships with children. He and his wife, Dottie, draw on their own experiences of raising four children and five grandchildren to give encouragement and solid information to parents who are challenged with the sometimes awkward process of guiding their own children into a healthy understanding of sex and young relationships.
Josh and his son, Sean, a high school teacher, author and speaker, will be available for questions and answers after the presentation.
A pastor and lay ministry leader breakfast will be held on Monday, Sept. 24 at Walnut Creek Church. Josh and Sean McDowell will be presenting on some of the many challenges facing church leadership today. Registration is required for this free breakfast seminar.
These events conclude a full weekend of seminars and presentations by the McDowells entitled “The Bare Facts.” The weekend events begin on Friday evening at the Knapp Center in Des Moines and continue with additional presentations at First Federated Church and The Downtown Church on Saturday.
