The Purtiy Code Pledge:
In honor of God, my family, and my future, I commit to pursue a life of sexual purity. This commitment includes:
Honoring God with my body (1 Corinthians 6:18-20),
Renewing my mind for the good (Romans 12:2),
Turning my eyes from worthless things (Matthew 6: 22-23), and
Guarding my heart above all else (Proverbs 4:23).
WHAT is the Purity Code?
The Purity Code is a book by Dr. Jim Burns that speaks to the importance of teaching our kids God’s great plan for sex and the many areas of life sexual purity presents itself.
In following the Purity Code, students are asked to make this pledge:
“In honor of God, my family, and my future, I commit to pursue a life of sexual purity.” It encourages making a lifetime commitment to:
Honoring God with my body
Renewing my mind for the good
Turning my eyes from worthless things
Guarding my heart above all else
You, as parents, will be the one to help build the foundation your kid will need to make this commitment – a foundation of healthy sexuality that is based on Scripture and strong enough to withstand the forces of secular culture.
"As a parent, what can I do?"
We believe the home is the center of godly influence.
- There are 168 hours in a week.
- The average student will spend 1-2 hours each week in church.
- They will spend much more time at home, under your care, seeing your example, taking in your influence.
- Be intentional with your influence!
Lead out in the conversations with your child.
- Realize “the talk” is not one talk, but an ongoing dialogue
Pray about how you will continue the conversation and (hopefully) celebrate your child’s decision to make a purity stance.
We will help resource you with ideas towards a home ceremony celebrating their choice.
- Set up check-in moments along the way with your child.
- Model a life of purity in your actions, attitudes, and words.
WHY the Purity Code?
The Purity Code is the resource we have chosen to best walk students through a general understanding of God’s creation, context, and celebration of sex and sexuality.
The Purity Code focuses on the 'why,' not on the ‘how.’
WHEN will students go through the Purity Code?
The Purity Code will take place each Wednesday night from February 6 through March 13.
Our Student LIFE Groups gather for worship at 6:30pm and move into groups after that. Most groups finish up around 7:50pm.
No preregistration is required. LIFE Groups are open to students in 6th through 12th grade.
