This Winter we have two greatÂ opportunitiesÂ for every parent at Calvary. Â First, Pastor Clark and I will be teaching a two week class addressing issues surrounding parents and their kids use of technology. Â We find stats such as the average child is first exposed to pornography on the internet at the age of 12 staggering, and we want to do something about them. Â So, we are going to teach this class for parents addressing issues such as how to filter content on the internet, monitor their kids on Facebook, Twitter, cell phones, the whole gamut. We’ll also be sure to leave some time at the end of each class for parents to ask any questions they like on the topic. Â The class is scheduled for January 23rd and 30th at 10:15. Location TBA.
Then on February 5th Calvary is hosting a Home Improvement Ministries conference entitled “Sacred Parenting in a Not So Sacred World.” Gary Thomas is the guest speaker so it guaranteed to be a worthwhile day. Â Here is a brief write-up on the conference…
In a world that is less than “sacred,” we as parents are often at a loss on how to raise kids who honor God, their parents and others. Â We’re looking for easy steps to “new kids” when we may do better to look first at our own lives. Â Gary Thomas, author of Sacred Marriage and Sacred Parenting, helps us understand “How Raising Children Shapes Our Souls.” Â In addition to Gary Thomas’ three plenary sessions,Â practicalÂ workshops will round out thisÂ incrediblyÂ important day.

If you’re a parent be sure not to miss out on these two greatÂ opportunities.
