RECOMMENDED READING
The Tech-wise Family  by Andy Crouch
Making conscientious choices about technology in our families is more than just using internet filters and determining screen time limits for our children. It's about developing wisdom, character, and courage in the way we use digital media rather than accepting technology's promises of ease, instant gratification, and the world's knowledge at our fingertips. And it's definitely not just about the kids.

• Read the Bible in a year!
In 2023, as we seek to ABIDE by Being with God, Being with Others, and Being Sent, we want to kick off the year with a Bible-in-a-year Reading Plan! Will you join us? Within the YouVersion Bible app, we have chosen to use the Bible Project's "One Story That Leads to Jesus" reading plan. We will begin reading together this weekend! 




 


 

 

14 Days of Hope and Encouragement
If a year-long Bible reading plan is a little intimidating (or if it just isn't enough!), we have also identified a plan that leads us through the book of Philippians in 14 days.
