Spiritual Development

Bible Study
July 23rd- Understanding Sexuality and our Faith

Taught by Dr. Kate Ott of Drew University. These workshops for Tweens, Teens, and parents. These will be two hour blocks. The workshop for parents is separate from the tweens and teens. They will have the opportunity to explore key topics in children's and teens sexual development, and the ways social media has changed the landscape of communication and relationships. Parents will begin to learn about values related to sexuality (teachable moments), and current research on where our children put their values into practice (including having positive body image, delaying mature sexual behaviors, and developing healthy relationships.

2.5 - 3 hour Workshop for Tweens and Teens
The tween and teen program will be based on an interactive format (game playing, small grops, q&a). We will discuss the difference between sexuality and "sex" ans what our Christian faith says about building healthy relationships. We will also focus on how to communicate what we want/need to achieve a healthy relationship based on our values including (or especially) with regard to use of social media. Specifically, we will discuss scenarios to address the difficult questions of saying "yes" and "no" to sexual behaviors. In other words, we will address questions like: What does a good relationship look like, and what faith value should I base this on? When should I kiss someone? When is it okay to move beyond kissing? Why should I wait to have sexual Intercourse if I'm in high school?  How do I start a new relationship if I've already had sex? Is sexting sex? What does good communication look like when it comes to social media?

Every second Sunday after worship, our youth group meets to make and provide meals for people in the community in need.  We always need an extra set of hands.  There are a number of opportunities for worshippers to participate in mission work in the community, so that we can help to create and sustain a healthy New Rochelle. We have active men's and women's ministries that are a vital part of our community of faith, and the community of New Rochelle, NY.
