Parenting in a Digital Age:
Attention parents, grandparents, and those who might want to be parents someday! We have a special event coming up for you October 15-16th: Parenting in a Digital Age. With the access our children have to the internet, screen time, the seemingly endless bombardment of social media, video platforms, and the like, we will be taking a look at how we can effectively navigate and parent our children through these times. Discussing the dangers that we might not be aware of, practical advice and support, and so much more. Our speaker will be Derry Prinkert who has over 20+ years of student ministry experience and youth culture. Dinner will be provided both days at 5:45 and the programming starting at 6pm to 8:30pm. We HIGHLY recommend that you make the time and effort to attend this weekend seminar as it will be valuable to not just parents and parents-to-be, but to grandparents or anyone who works with children and students.
