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 pursuing 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.
We believe the home is the center of godly influence.
Lead out in the conversations with your child.
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.
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.’
The Purity Code will take place each Wednesday night from February 6 through March 13.
Our Student LIFE Groups gather for worship at 6:30 pm and move into groups after that. Most groups finish up around 7:50 pm.
No preregistration is required. LIFE Groups are open to students in 6th through 12th grade.
This is an easy way to physically remind your student of their commit towards purity. It is to be worn on the ring finger of their left hand, where a wedding band would go.
Purity rings can be found in a number of different places. Here are a few local options and beyond:
If you are comfortable shopping online and know a ring size, you might consider searching online for a great variety.
The idea is to have an easy way to celebrate, affirm, and encourage your student’s decision towards the pursuit of purity.
These are a few (hopefully) easy wins for your family. You are free to be as creative or predictable as you wish. This is for you. This is for your students. This is a lifelong pursuit of knowing, loving, and living for Jesus Christ.
