Event: Wednesday, January 23, 6:30pm, Gender and Sexuality 101

This will be an evening of learning with Julia Smith, Coordinator for Student Support and Sexuality Programming at Calvin College, and Joshua Van Wyhe (recent Calvin graduate). We’ll look together at a framework for thinking about sex, gender, and sexual orientation that can help us sort out the sometimes confusing array of LGBT+ terms, concepts, and identities.

We’ll also share personal stories, data, and resources that can point us towards more nuanced conversations about gender and sexuality in the church.

Questions will be collected in advance and during the event. If you have a question, please fill out a card and place it in the box in the café space, or email your questions to the event facilitators, Lisa VanArragon (Chair, Congregational Life Team) or Chris Klein (Minister of Congregational Life, christopher.klein@coscrc.org). You will also have the opportunity to submit questions during the event.
