AUTHENTIC LOVE SUMMER STUDY
During the Summer, for 4 weeks we will be offering a Focus group called Authentic Love. Please sign up here. Everyone will start meeting June 7th at 6pm at the Church and will meet every Thursday.
Every day we are invited into a world where we can create, customize, and even change our identity. We become consumers in a culture that tells us we can have whatever we want whenever we want it. Speaking directly to the hearts of guys and girls, Authentic Love: Christ, Culture, and the Pursuit of Purityexposes culture’s distorted messages about purity and love and reveals how God has created us for a lifestyle of personal holiness. Over the course of 4 weeks, students will examine five attributes of holiness that shape our identity. They will be challenged to reject the self-serving influences of culture and embrace what it means to live as godly young men and women who reflect the character of Christ.
Because this study naturally leads to the discussion of sex and sexual purity, we will need parental approval for students to participate in these focus groups. We will have 4 focus groups during the summer. One for each: High school guys, High school girls, Middle school guys, and Middle school girls.
We are also opening this study for Parents who would like to walk through this material as your student is going through it. The goal of this is for parents to know what their student is going through, but also help parents who are struggling with the same issues and need some help as well. Please sign up here if you are interested in being a part of our Parent groups. We will have one group for Men and one for Women.
