We will offer the Our Whole Lives (OWL) program for grade 7-9 youth at First Church this 2023-24 church year. This class will be held on Sundays from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. with two extended weekend classes.
Parents of youth in grades 7-9 who may be interested in participating in our yearlong program: 1) must be members of First Church and 2) are required to attend a parent orientation meeting which has been scheduled for Sunday, August 27 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at church.
The OWL program helps participants make informed and responsible decisions about their relationships, sexual health, and behavior. With a holistic approach, OWL provides accurate, developmentally appropriate information about a range of topics including, relationships, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, sexual health, and cultural influences on sexuality.
We are so very grateful to our lead facilitators: Jessie Moffat, Jeremy Koenen, John Fitak, Katie Maedke Hall, and Crysta Jarczynski. We couldn’t offer this important life changing program for our youth without them and their commitment.
If you are interested in having your youth participate in this life changing program at First Church, please contact Deb Solis at firstname.lastname@example.org by August 20, 2023.
