Choosing the Best 2024
We will be offering an abstinence-oriented, biblically based sexual education course called Choosing the Best (CTB). Our culture is flooded with confusing and conflicting information about sex and CTB presents a Christian perspective to help us better understand this gift from God. We want the students to be equipped with knowledge so that they can combat misinformation. We believe that God should be in the conversation, as these young adults form their opinions about sex, sexual activity, and sexual ethics.
The students and their parents will meet Saturday, February 17th. At this day-long class, the students will learn what was previously taught in the first 4 weeks of the class. This will include anatomy, sexual intercourse, contraceptives, and STIs. The second part of the Middle School class will be Wednesday nights at the same time as Pathfinders on Wednesday (POW!). The Wednesday night classes will be the same content that has been taught the last 4 weeks of CTB in previous years. The dates for the Wednesday night classes will be February 21st, 28th, March 6th, 13th, and 27th.
For 5th and 6th graders, the Saturday class is required to be able to attend the following 5 Wednesdays. 7th and 8th-grade students will be in the Wednesday night classes even if they did not attend the Saturday class. It is highly recommended every student attend the Saturday class. This is because the class builds on itself. This is such a helpful tool to open the conversation about sex. You and your Pathfinder will be learning and uncomfortable together. Once you have walked through this course; you know what they know, your uncomfortable experience opens the door for future conversations (your Pathfinder has already experienced the most uncomfortable thing, so discomfort is no longer a roadblock), and they have a great foundation for future conversations (also helpful in debunking incorrect information they will hear from their peers).
