RICHMOND, Texas (AP) — A billboard along a Houston-area highway carries a message to "Love Sex."

KHOU-TV (http://bit.ly/14i0uqt ) reports the billboard in Richmond advertises nondenominational River Pointe Church and a three-part series on healthy relationships.

The billboard says: "You are invited to Love Sex." The sermons beginning this weekend will focus a biblical world view on love, sex, dating and marriage.

Executive Pastor Dean King says the billboard went up Monday on property owned by River Pointe Church, which has about 5,000 members at two church locations. King said Wednesday that the sermons are meant to offer a healthy approach from God's perspective.

Some drivers have wondered about the sign. Kimberly Marine told KHOU that when she realized a church was behind the message she thought it was "bold" to put on a billboard.
