Answering the Tough Questions About Sexuality: Parent and Teen Workshops
Thursday, April 25, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
Let's admit it, sexuality can be a very overwhelming and confusing topic. Within our culture, questions about sexuality are starting at earlier ages and many don't know where to turn for answers. In this workshop Jake Kircher, Youth Pastor at Grace Comunity Church in New Canaan, CT and author of Answering the Tough Questions About Sexuality, will help parents understand what teens are facing today when it comes to sex as well as cover some tips and advice on how to talk to your kids about sex.
After the parent workshop, there will be a FREE teen workshop for students 7th grade through 12th grade on Answering the Tough Questions About Sexuality from 7:00pm-8:30pm at the same location. During this workshop, Jake will address the following questions:
- What does God think about sex?
- How does God intend us to use sex?
- Why would God want us to not have sex?
- How does sex impact our bodies?
- Where is the line?
- What does the Bible say about homsexuality?
- What does God think about masturbation?
- What if I have already had sex?
Teens can come early with parents and there will be food and activites available for them to hangout from 6:00pm-7:00pm.

Praise for Jake's book:
"Jake Kircher has written a wonderful booklet on sexuality giving the honest, straight scoop on healthy sexuality. He knows the key questions kids and parents are asking and he answers them with short, yet profound answers. This is a booklet I will pass along to everyone I can. Parents get this booklet and give it to your kids. They will read it. Youth Workers buy this booklet for your entire youth group and go over each question and answer. It’s great stuff."

“At a time when our young people struggle deeply to understand their sexuality and parents and youth leaders search for ways to clearly and effectively communicate the basic truths about this critical topic, along comes Answering the Tough Questions About Sexuality. Jake Kircher packs a lot of solid information and, more importantly, Godly wisdom into this concise and straight forward little booklet that will serve as an excellent resource for parents, youth workers, and the young people they love care about.”

“Our over-sexualized world is giving kids lots of guidance and direction on how to live out the wonderful gift of their sexuality. Sadly, most of that direction is anything but helpful, good, or Godly. Jake Kircher's little book is a great springboard into thoughtful discussion of sex and sexuality, offering parents and teens answers and advice that can launch them into a deeper understanding of God's best for this area of their lives."
