What does the bible say about sex, sexuality, purity, and intimacy?

In our day, there are many approaches to sex within the church. Over the Redeeming Sex Weekend that took place on October 22-23, 2021, we offered a biblical and practical approach to sex, sexual integrity, purity, and intimacy. Whether you are single, married, in college, same-sex-attracted, or widowed we invite you to watch the recorded sessions from the weekend below.
