Class

The Tech-Wise Family

Monitoring technology and social media use with our children is among the greatest challenges of parenting in our time. On one hand, it’s helpful to have that handy device to keep our kids occupied. But, how do we manage our relationship with technology in a way that prioritizes our relationships with one another? It’s a challenging, yet worthwhile, conversation. Using Andy Crouch’s book, The Tech-Wise Family, we’ll unpack the 10 Tech-Wise Commitments that families can make to ensure they’ve got control of the technology … and not the other way around! Books are $16 and may be purchased when you register. Books will be available to pick up at the class.  

Spiritual Gifts

Once the excitement of opening packages on Christmas morning has passed, spend some time unpacking the gifts that you’ve been given by the power of the Holy Spirit. This 8-week course (5 sessions in January and February, and 3 in April) will help you to identify the particular ways that God is empowering you to live your faith. Ashley Valentine-Derrer will lead this in-depth study of how God invites us to use our unique set of strengths and interests to know, love and serve our Lord and neighbors. Class materials are $16 and may be purchased when you register. Class materials will be available to pick up at the class.
