Our Whole Lives
Our Whole Lives (OWL) program for youth in grades 7-9 and 10-12! OWL is a collaborative program offered by the United Church of Christ’s Justice and Witness Ministries and the Unitarian Universalist Association. Per the UCC website:
Our Whole Lives, together with Sexuality and Our Faith, helps participants make informed and responsible decisions about their relationships, health and behavior in the context of their faith. It equips participants with accurate, age-appropriate information in six subject areas: human development, relationships, personal skills, sexual behavior, sexual health, and society and culture.
Lake Edge UCC is happy to be partnering with the Janesville and McFarland UCC congregations for the 2014-15 programming year. Enclosed please find an overview of the OWL program from the UCC and a schedule for the upcoming sessions. We strongly encourage the youth in your family in grades 7 – 12 consider participating in OWL, as it is a wonderful way for adult mentors and peers to enter into safe space and share discussions regarding faith, health, sexual behavior, and social concerns.
