Senior High Youth Group (SHYG)

What’s Love Got to Do With It?

In honor of Valentine’s Day, the February topic for Sr. High Youth Group was Physical Love. After making & enjoying heart-shaped pizzas and playing some Valentine’s games, the youth joined Pastor Kelly and guest heath teacher, Andrea Ksziak, to explore the expression and consequences of physical love. They considered three different parts to a relationship:

  • Physical Aspect (including the possible negative consequences of STDs & unwanted pregnancy)
  • Emotional Aspect (respect for yourself, for & from your partner, and respect from others)
  • Spiritual Aspect
    • Your body is a gift from God
    • The act should be an expression love
    • Make God a part of your relationship

Pastor Kelly used a cupcake analogy to drive home her point—a good relationship is built with many different ingredients. Sex is the icing on the cake, but you can not build a relationship on that alone. Our goal was to ensure they are armed with facts and religious guidance so that they can make their own decisions someday. We also encourage parents to use this as a starting point for further discussions with their children in order to impart their own values. So, what’s love got to do with it? Everything!
