We’re in the Facebook Official series in our High School Ministry right now and about to turn the corner this weekend to talk about sex and dating. Here’s a letter I adapted to send to parents via email today. Wanted to give them a heads up about what is coming:
Dear HSM Parents,
I wanted to take a moment to inform you about the current series we are teaching in the High School Ministry at Saddleback Church. It is called Facebook Official and deals specifically and candidly about relationships during the high school years. This weekend we are in part 3 of the 5 week series and soon we’re going to be talking candidly about God’s plan for sex. Here are the details for the remaining weeks of the series:
- October 22/23: Dating
Taught by Josh Griffin
7 Questions to Ask About My Dating Relationship
- October 29/30: The Sex Talk
Taught by Doug Fields
God’s Plan for Sex
- November 5/6: Where Do I Go From Here?
Taught by Josh Griffin
We’ve talked about friendship, marriage, love, dating and sex. How do I make changes or receive forgiveness and live differently from now on?
This series has been incredible so far — the students have been 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 teenagers’ specific needs – if this is the case, please feel free to have them attend the adult worship service with you as appropriate.
Thanks for allowing our High School Ministry team to play a small part in God’s plan for your teenager’s life!Graduation SALE: Discounted prices on Jesus-centered graduation gift sets until May 1. Plus, FREE standard shipping. Prepare them for what's next!
