Current Series: MADE
JANUARY 27 - FEBRUARY 17
Let’s face it: Sex is everywhere. It’s all across movies, TV, music, social media—really just about everywhere we look. There are so many messages out there about sex that it’s important we know what God has to say about it. Here’s the truth: God made sex and God made you; both with a purpose and on purpose. Psalm 139:14 says, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” David’s response to looking at who we are and how God created us is praise! Throughout this series, we will be talking to students on something that can be really difficult to talk about and understand, but we can point students to the same response that David had—a response that praises God for how they’re made.
We also have a few resources to talk to your middle school student about dating.
