When Kids Come Out” a Four-Session Class for Parents of LGBTQ Children

What happens when a child comes out to his/her parents? The experience often raises many questions for both the child and the family.  For example:
• What does it mean for the family when a child comes out to his/her/their parents?
• What does it mean for the parents’ relationship to their church?
• What does it mean for the parents’ own faith?
• How do parents navigate their own “coming out” after their children have come out to them?
• What do I/we need to know as parents of an LGBTQ child with the recent actions of the General Conference in St. Louis?
These questions are among those that will be addressed in the four-session class that will be held on Wednesday evenings, September 18, 25, October 2 and 9.  The sessions will be held at Worthington UMC, 600 High St., Worthington. The meetings will start at 7:00 pm and will conclude by 8:30 pm. Parking is available at the church.   Look for signs directing you to the class. Contact Jim Waugh with questions, jwaugh3 [at]
