Blurb for Winter Retreat Flyer:

Pornography, sexual immorality, and confusion has raided our modern culture. Our young people are introduced to sex in many different forms younger and younger. In a recent survey last year, 90% of young people ages 8-16 have viewed pornography online. Additionally, in a survey conducted in 1996, 46% of all 15-19 year olds in the US have had sexual intercourse at least once. By age 15, 13% of teens have had sex, but by the time they are 19 years old, 7 our of 10 teens have had sexual intercourse!

Furthermore, at 13.3 billion, the 2006 revenues of the sex and porn industry in the U.S. are bigger than the NFL (=football), NBA (=basketball) and MLB (=baseball) combined. Worldwide sex industry sales for 2006 are reported to be 97 billion. To put this in perspective, Microsoft, who sells the operating system used on most of the computers in the world (in addition to other software) reported sales of 44.8 billion in 2006.

Is there a solution? Can we do anything to help our teens fight against culture and honor God by living sexually pure in this impure generation? Yes there is hope! There is a solution and God’s Word contains it. Join us on our winter retreat this year to Big Bear as we study these issues and dig into the Bible to see what God has to say. Our theme is: God, Purity, and Sex. If we properly understand God, we will know what he demands regarding our purity, and that will then put sex in its proper and beautiful place within the marriage covenant between one man and one woman. Consider coming with us. The cost is only $110. Scholarships are available on a need basis. Talk with pastor Geoff for more info.
