6:00 PM – My Wired Life (This seminar is for your teenagers)
It is inescapable. From the time you get up in the morning until you lay your head down to rest at night, technology will be all around you. The typically teenager now spends eleven hours of his/her day “plugged in” to some type of tech. Technology is not a bad thing, but rather how we use. And for many teens it’s the first place the wheels start coming off the track in their life. From bullying, to sexting, to video chatting, to internet pornography…it’s increasingly difficult to honor God and avoid the trap of letting technology control you. This workshop will help you think through your choices and how you set your own boundaries to use technology in an honoring way.
