Boys will be discussing pornography and sexual temptation. Boys will be separated and given a message by small group leader, Eric Ebersole based on the following scripture:
“God’s will is that your lives are dedicated to him. This means that you stay away from sexual immorality and learn how to control your own body in a pure and respectable way. Don’t be controlled by your sexual urges like the Gentiles who don’t know God.” 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5
We will be very careful not to assume that this is an issue for all our male students, but do ask that our parents talk with their students before this night at Merge about this topic, as well as have follow up conversation with them after.
Girls will be discussing self-esteem via body image, messages that media sends them, how God’s truth gives them power over their bodies and dating choices. Small Group leader, Amy Kerr will lead this discussion with them.
