It's a sexy message in the middle of downtown Prestonsburg, on the windows of a church! Leaders acknowledge the signs have some shock value, and they're raising a few eyebrows.

It's the last thing you would expect in downtown Prestonsburg.

"Kind of shocking. We passed by and didn't know what was going on," said Megan Goble, from Floyd County.

She's talking about a sexy set of signs on the windows of a church.

"Because it's in a church and says sex people are outraged," said Dr. Lee Boyd, Pastor of Destination Community Church.

Dr. Boyd is leading a four part sermon series on the Biblical principles of sex.

"What we're doing is teaching them the way God wants sex to be not the society wants sex to be," said Boyd.

"It's both inspiring and scary, but we were called to do it. So we have to do it," said John Willoughby, a church member.

It's a calling for them that's a bit over the top for others.

Last week a sign appeared on the church's window, asking what would Jesus do? That's a question church leaders are poised to answer.

"A lot of people say what's going on there, but they don't know what's going on. We really want to teach people what God says about sex," said Boyd.

Teaching for them includes using a bed in the middle of the church and a website complete with a video.

"It's just become mainstream, and that's not the way God designed it," said Boyd.

A mission for one place of worship, that sheds light on a sultry subject.

"You sure don't see it on a church," said Goble.

Church leaders hope the publicity will bring more folks in. The second installment in the series is this Sunday. Pastor Boyd says so far, the reaction he's heard from his congregation is positive.
