Waiting, Dating, and Mating at a Glance

Our entire lives we are inundated with culture telling us how to live. It tells us alcohol is cool, acceptance is paramount, and sex is no big deal. In our new series, “Waiting, Dating, and Mating” we will take a look at what the bible tells us about having relationships that will honor Him emotionally, spiritually, and physically. Alongside this series we offer our “Elephant in the Room” resource which allows boys who are struggling with lust, pornography, and masturbation the safe help they need to recognize that those are not God honoring things. We hope to see you this weekend!

Week #1— The Problem with Dating

This week we will be discussing what it looks like to be in a dating relationship and what makes it looks different than any other relationship you are apart of.

Week #2— Friends and Flirting

Friends are some of the most important people in our lives, especially in High School, friends help define you. This week we will discuss why it is easier to evaluate the opposite sex in a friendship capacity rather than a dating relationship.

Week #3— Strings Attached

This week is the big one, we are talking about sex and what God’s original intent for it was as well as how we should view it from a biblical perspective. We will also hit on the problem of pornography in our culture how it distorts our view of what sex is meant to be.

Week #4—The Big Story

What’s a better way to finish this series than to talk about love and what it means for the lives of our students? Jesus best demonstrates his love to us on the cross, what does that mean to a student though?
