UUA describes Our Whole Lives program as comprehensive education curricula for use in both secular settings and faith communities. Honest, accurate information about sexuality changes in lives. It dismantles stereotypes and assumptions, builds self-acceptance and self-esteem, fosters healthy relationships, improves decision making, and has the potential to save lives. There is an OWL facilitator team and groups vary from 6 to 12 participants. Please note this program is offered only every other year at FPC. The next time will be 2019-2020.
