What We’re Learning: More To The Story
Teaching Topic: Dating + Sexual Integrity
A main priority of our ministry is partnering with awesome teen parents (aka YOU) as you
raise your awesome teenagers. This Dating + Sexual Integrity Parent Packet is one way we seek to partner with you: we recommend you read it, pray, and prepare now for leading your students in
healthy, Biblical conversations at home. Remember, it’s not just a one time talk; the goal
is to have ongoing conversations where your students can ask you questions and be open
with you as they navigate and grow in their ever-changing world.
