Dating or Courtship?

"Treat younger men as brothers, older women as mothers,
and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity."

I Timothy 5:2

Teens in the Park

Serve Jesus
with all your Heart!

Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Romans 12: 1-2

Develop a new attitude toward dating!

Why I Choose Courtshipby Brian Webb

Courtship 1by Katie Beth Curtis

Courtship 2by Katie Beth Curtis

An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord's affairs-- how he can please the Lord.... An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord's affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit."

I Corinthians 7:32, 34

My unmarried years are a gift from God!

How to Stay Pure in a Seductive Worldby Zack Nolette

In the Lord, however, woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God.

I Corinthians 11:11-12

Girls, dress modestly with propriety
to honor your brothers!

Young Ladies at a Wedding

Intimacy is the reward of commitment
I don't need to pursue a romantic relationship
before I'm ready for marriage!

Finally, brothers, we instructed you how to live in order to please God, as in fact you are living. Now we ask you and urge you in the Lord Jesus to do this more and more. For you know what instructions we gave you by the authority of the Lord Jesus.

It is God's will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control his own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the heathen, who do not know God; and that in this matter no one should wrong his brother or take advantage of him. The Lord will punish men for all such sins, as we have already told you and warned you. For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, he who rejects this instruction does not reject man but God, who gives you his Holy Spirit.

Now about brotherly love we do not need to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love each other. And in fact, you do love all the brothers throughout Macedonia. Yet we urge you, brothers, to do so more and more.

I Thessalonians 4:1-10

Respect the deep significance of physical intimacy!
