I wanted to take a moment to inform you about a upcoming series we are going to be teaching at the Wednesday night IGNITE service starting February 8th . It is called “Sex, God’s Way” This series deals specifically and candidly about relationships during the middle/high school years. We’re going to be talking candidly about God’s plan for sex.
We know that Sex sells. Sex tempts. Sex Lies. Sex glorifies. How can one thing do all this? In Sex God’s way, I will tackle this oh-so-difficult but oh-so-important topic. Our students are bombarded daily with messages about sex, about their own sexuality and little of it borders on Truth. Rather than try and stifle their natural curiosity with the simple plan to “wait until marriage” this series is going to dig deep to reframe sex in light of God’s design and purpose.
The four topics are:
- Week 1 – Created in God’s image
- Week 2 – God’s word on Sex
- Week 3 – Sex is so much more than I thought
- Week 4 – Messing up to Making up
This series is going to be incredible – the students will be engaged and attentive to this series. We’re praying for scores of commitments and life-change to the Biblical understanding of sex.
I’m sharing these insights with you so you will know what your student will be hearing, and so you can use them as launching pads for discussion. I also wanted to give you this “heads up” because I recognize some may not feel the timing is appropriate for your teenager’s specific needs – if this is the case, please feel free to hold them out of IGNITE for a few short week, or they could go downstairs and help out with our Awana program.
Thanks for allowing our Canyons Church Student Ministry team to play a small part in God’s plan for your teenager’s life.
