This is a weekly update from Sean Brown with notes and information for both parents and youth.  Come back each week for updates!

February 8, 2019

Dear parents,
We start our first lesson on “Sex and Dating” this Friday.  In our first lesson “What’s the point?”  Our goal for the lesson isn’t to provide all the answers but to get teens thinking about where their ideas come from and to encourage them to see if their ideas match up with God’s best.

This is a critical topic to discuss as we help teenagers understand and experience freedom in Christ.

I encourage you to find a time in the weeks ahead to talk with your teenager about our group’s conversation. Consider asking these questions:

  • How do you know or decide which ideas about dating are crazy and which ones might be good or reasonable?
  • How can transformed thinking change your view of dating?
  • How can you build healthy relationships with members of the opposite sex without falling into all of our culture’s attitudes about dating?
  • How can we encourage you to pursue God’s ways in the midst of our culture’s crazy messages about dating and relationships?

Each week I will share what we spoke about at youth group, and that info will be found on the Westside Gathering app and on the WSG website under Connect/Westside Youth.  You can download the app from either the App store from iTunes or Google Play store for Android users.

If you have any questions you can always reach out to me.

We are meeting this Friday, February 8 from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Have a blessed week!
