Sex, Love and Relationships (THE GOOD)

Image
Last week was a real... ummm... eye opener I hope! This week, we're continuing to talk about love, SEX, and relationships. And if you missed last week, yes we're actually talking very openly about sex. Get your questions ready because you'll have the chance to ask anonymous questions again.

This week we're talking about the good parts. We're talking about what we can do right now with our sexual thoughts, which are right and which are wrong, and how we can make sure we are preparing now for the one that God has prepared for us in the future.

We'll also practice our murder mystery play further so come prepared to participate. The following week is our formal fundraiser banquet so tell your parents asap and get them to commit to coming for a 10$ dinner and show on the 26th to help raise money for our youth conference coming up over the Easter Weekend. Let Trevor or Sarah know ASAP who you have coming!

It's LOVE month

I don't know if you've noticed... but love is everywhere in February. And at Distinct... it's no different. The next 3 weeks, we're going to explore MANY aspects of love.

This Friday: THE BAD

We're going to be breaking into small groups with those who are our same gender and age group... and we're going to talk about the pitfalls of love, sex and relationship as a teenager and how to resist temptation and deal with our "feelings" God's way.

This is going to be a VERY open... VERY honest... and VERY important and impacting night where we plan on being very real so come prepared for a VERY memorable night at youth!

Next Friday: THE GOOD

We'll go back into our small groups and with a similar tone and frankness... we're going to discus the Good part of love, sex and relationships. What we should be looking for in a boyfriend/girlfriend/future spouse... how God sees our physical selves in a GOOD way and more.

THEN... we're going to start prep…

RAK Attack Night

Image
This Friday at youth... we're RAK Attacking Brantford! Here's the plan. We'll meet at the church at 7pm sharp. From there, we're going to chat a bit about WHY we do Random Acts of Kindness and HOW God can use it.

Then we'll be headed out in team with fists full of MITTENS! In the winter, what's more needed than mittens?? So we'll be going to hills, malls and wherever we can find people out in the cold and saying,

"Hi... I'm ____Your Name here________ from the Freedom House Youth Group. We just wanted to give you some mittens tonight to show you God's love in a practical way"

and then see what God does. Who knows... you may get to be the instigator of change in someones life this Friday.

We'll also be giving out flyer's for Frosty Fest... our Winter Carnival coming up Feb 13-15 in Harmony Square. It's going to be an amazing way to go even further to show God's love in a tangible way.

And WE NEED YOU to make Frosty Fes…
