Our Whole Lives - There are several opportunities for people to participate in the Our Whole Lives ministry this fall.
Parents are children’s primary teachers, but what is society teaching our children about sexuality? Our Whole Lives is an antidote to sexualized media messages, peer pressure, misinformation and prejudice. It provides accurate, age-appropriate information, puts sexuality in the context of values and personal responsibility, supports healthy decision making, and strengthens social skills. These skills and values help prepare youth to make healthy choices for life.
Our Whole Lives (OWL) values:
•Justice and Inclusivity
OWL models and teaches caring, compassion, respect, and justice. It helps adolescents address their attitudes, values, and feelings about themselves, their sexuality, and others’ sexuality. Participants are guided by trained facilitators through an engaging curriculum that addresses topics most important to young adolescents, including those typically excluded from sexuality education and health classes. Each workshop is 60-90 minutes.
Senior High youth will begin the program with an Escape Room on Labor Day at 4:30 pm followed by pizza and our first session. We will continue weekly on Sundays at 10:45 am in person.
