Our Whole Lives 

 

Our Whole Lives/Sexuality and Our Faith (OWL) offers families, children, and teens a comprehensive educational process of gaining information and forming attitudes, beliefs, and values about sexual identity, relationships, and intimacy.

Our Whole Lives helps parents fulfill their role as the primary educators of their children on issues of sexuality and helps create a partnership between the family and the church through parent orientation and parent education programs.

Individuals who participate in the program will know that their church cares about sexuality as a God-given part of life.  In the program, young people will build relationships with faithful adults who care about sexuality education and sexual development.  The program offers comprehensive sexuality education, which is about much more than just anatomy and health.  It is about faith, values, respect, emotions, and justice.
