Our Whole Lives
Sexuality and Our Faith Secondary Training
Adults who are seeking to be trained OWL facilitators
Cost: $250 (by 5/15); $275 (5/16 – 7/24)
This three-day intensive training will prepare you to facilitate a values-based, justice-oriented comprehensive sexuality education curriculum to youth (grades 7-9) and teens (grades 10-12). You will learn how to put sexuality into the context of UCC faith values though the use of Sexuality and Our Faith, A Companion to Our Whole Lives. This training is important in the life of the modern church, as sexuality raises personal, communal, and theological issues for every religious community.
