hello all... if any could help me with some info., I would greatly appreciate it. I am sorry, but I'm not sure if this is a "pastoral ministries" topic... it just seems to fit because I am in the ministry... and need help . I am a youth pastor who teaches the Jr. - Sr. High Sunday School class. We have had a few students who have become "couples", and have been getting pretty "touchie-feelie" at church, and at various youth outings. Nothing really bad... just holding hands, hanging on each other CONSTANTLY and the occasional smooch. Now, I have already talked to them about respecting others in public/church situations, and have asked them to keep that kind of stuff to a bare minimum (if at all). My fear is... that most of the kids I know are pretty decent guys/girls, but some of the people they are involved with are not... and if they are that open with each other in a public setting... then I know that they are probably going a bit further in private. I know that they obviously get a bombardment of influence in that area from the world, and I am pretty sure that most of their home lives aren't that Biblically based either. My wife and I have been talking about it and praying about it for a while, and we feel that we need to use the open door of being their Sunday school teachers to witness to them about what the Bible has to say about sexual purity. I suggested that we do somewhat of a "split-session" where we start off talking together with the whole class, then we break for a smaller setting with me & the guys and her w/the girls. That way we can answer questions/concerns they may have that they wouldn't dare ask in front of each other. My question is what do we say? is there any lesson plans on the subject? even some, that if not age appropriate, we can alter, and draw our own outline from? Maybe someone else here has had the same problem or has led the same type of class discussion .... let me know..... please.
