Paris Pregnancy Center is encouraging abstinence in teens with an event at Love Civic Center on Wednesday.
The pregnancy center is the local sponsor of One Night Stand, a national tour presented by the Silver Ring Thing that promotes purity and abstinence with programs both for youth and parents.
The event is scheduled for 6:30-8:30 p.m. It’s free, but registration is required. On-site registration begins at 5:45 p.m., and online registration is also available. Rings will be available at the event for $20.
A special parent session is scheduled for 6:30 to 7:15 p.m.
“It’s been said that if you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything. In our meet up, hook-up, break-up culture, it’s hard to stand for anything that goes against the flow. Waiting for marriage can seem impossible and out of touch. With all the mounting pressures and shrinking morals, how can you survive?” the event’s website states. “The One Night Stand Tour is an injection of truth into a morally decaying culture. It’s a message of hope for the confused and hurting; a rally cry for the worn-out and weary. It’s boldness to face the critics and courage to be counted.”
Silver Ring Thing offers support after the event with an “Until Marriage” text-message system, monthly video devotionals, email and social media correspondence and personal counseling. For parents, the organization offers a video-based program called Bare Essentials. Topics include the role of parents in the abstinence decision, the risks and consequences of sexually transmitted diseases and teen pregnancy in America and methods to support a teen’s decision for abstinence decision.
SRT is a youth ministry that promotes the message of purity and abstinence until marriage.
