Our Whole Lives

Our Whole Lives: Sexuality and Our Faith program

Banner-RRR“Our Whole Lives: Sexuality and Our Faith” is the comprehensive sexuality education curriculum we provide for our youth. Leaders integrate worship, prayer, and discussion of United Church of Christ faith values and principles into the programs (see www.ucc.org/…our-whole-lives  ). Participating in a human sexuality program in the church will help participants understand that sexuality is an important part of the way God created us; that their church cares about their sexual development; and that caring Christian adults are willing and able to talk with them about their questions and concerns. This sexuality education program offers a twenty-five week course for 8th graders as well as programs for youth in grades 4-6, high school youth in grades 10-12,  young adults, and adults.

Our Whole Lives is an extraordinary opportunity for youth to develop as sexually healthy and whole people. We draw from sources in our faith tradition teaching that human sexuality is God’s gift, which develops an ethic of sexual behavior that is mutual, respecting of persons, loving, and just. We invite all young people and their families to participate in this remarkable program.

Our Whole Lives: Sexuality and Our Faith is the best human sexuality curriculum there is.  We look forward to sharing OWL with you and your family in the safety and support of our church family.  Thank you for sharing this opportunity with other youth/families you know!
