Churches talk sex during sessions for youth

Local youth are invited to talk about sex, dating, pornography, relationships and more during a program taking place every Sunday night in February.

Various churches will work alongside Columbia Bible College (CBC) to present speakers, and music by local bands. The program starts at 7:30 p.m. in the CBC gym (2940 Clearbrook Rd.).

Throughout the sessions, there will be opportunities for participants to ask questions and talk about sex and relationships.

Pastor Jon Wiebe of South Abbotsford Church said questions that will be addressed include: “What’s the big deal with having sex before you’re married?” and “Is looking at porn really that bad?”

“I believe that the church has relevant things to say on the topic of sex and relationships,” Wiebe said. “MTV and the Internet shouldn’t be the only places for youth and young adults to turn to for advice on sex.”
