What are some options that your church has come up with?
Yes, and yes.
My church can't physically stop a teen from having sex, it happens...
They just teach them the doctrines, and give ideas how to live it. It teaches that our bodies and sexuality are sacred, not dirty, sacred. For the youth specifically, there's a thing called "for strength of the youth" pamphlet and website that gives ideas for dating standards.

If churches gave advice that would be fine. My Mom and I talked about sex and birth control but I waited until I was in my 20's to have sex. IS there something wrong with me? LOL. I thought I had hormones and even though sex sounded really god, I resisted temptation and waited. SO---what's the deal? ARE all teens out of control and just have more hormones coursing through their blood? (My daughters too? They waited too.)
Holy cow,people. I thought sex was too important to waste it on some young goofy guy who was horny. I wanted to wait for someone who loved me and who I loved. CAN"t teens tHINK that way? Whatever happened to Love? ANd self-control?
