September Assembly: Gender Roles

Join us this month as we celebrate Sunday Assembly Knoxville’s TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY! We’ve come a long way, baby! September’s theme will be the titillating topic of “Gender Roles.” We’re going to switch it up a little bit, and instead of having a speaker, we’re going with a panel format. The panel will consist of several “experts” in the field, all contributing to different facets of the conversation. The assembly will also feature a Q&A segment for more audience engagement and interactivity than usual.

But in keeping with the norm, the program will also be interspersed with snarky and serious commentary on the subject of gender roles, with entertaining and enlightening readings and clips. And of course, we’ll sing a few thematic songs and play a game to get those endorphins flowing.

For the children’s program, we’ll be dividing them into two groups of older and younger kids since the content will be more age-appropriate. Aleta has prepared a lesson on gender roles for them, and they’ll also be doing “Bag of Wonders,” an idea borrowed from Camp Quest where boys and girls alike play dress up, paint faces and fingernails, and basically just let it all hang out ? We’ll also provide a snack, but don’t forget that parents must sign a one-time waiver that acknowledges rules and responsibilities, documents special needs like allergy information, as well as a sign-in sheet each time.

Please arrive at 10:30 to mingle and get situated since the assembly begins at 10:45. Since The International’s Layover Brunch is on hiatus, we’ll be headed downtown afterwards for brunch. We look forward to seeing old and new friends as we celebrate the one life we know we have…together!
