Your Brain on Porn
February 26: Your Brain on Porn: The Deadly Effects of the Internet on Brain Chemistry and Function. It’s time for God’s people to wake up and address an increasingly rampant problem that impacts relationships and families through every part of our society — even in the Church. If you yourself are not affected, someone you know is — or will be. Join us Tuesday, February 26, when the respected Christian ministry Covenant Eyes will acquaint us with new research on neuroscience as well as the timeless tools God offers us to help us take our thoughts captive to Christ. Whether you or someone you love struggles with pornography, there is hope in Him! Come find out how to fight the battle for you and your loved ones. No children under high school age (15), please.
Spouse of a Struggler
A wife who has just discovered her husband’s porn use may wonder if she did something wrong, or why she didn’t notice the signs earlier, or whether she will ever be able to trust him again. This presentation will cover the brain science behind porn addition, real life stories, and steps for moving forward. This presentation is ideal for men and women impacted by porn or seeking to learn more, and people who want to be a great resource for others. It is great for young couples, pre-marriage and singles as well.
Raising Kids in a Sexulized Culture
Kids are being exposed to sexualized media and pornography early and often and our pop culture tells them it’s a healthy outlet for sexuality. Families will learn how to create a safe online space and encourage ongoing conversations that empower kids to not only look away from sexualized media but also to confront our sex-obsessed culture. We can teach them to exercise and train their hearts and minds to be skillful, daring and brave.
