Upcoming Special Events

KEEPING YOUR KIDS ON GOD’S SIDE

We are inviting all of our Hope City families to join us for a seminar focused on Keeping Your Kids on God’s Side.

Sunday, March 21st, 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Denise Lang is currently serving at Vanguard College as adjunct Professor teaching in the area of youth ministry and apologetics, while pursuing a Masters Degree in Christian Apologetics. She is excited to partner with Hope City church to equip and encourage parents, grandparents and caregivers to do the most important work they will do- to build strong, healthy, vibrant and bold faith in their children.

This seminar will use the highly recommended resource by author Natasha Crain, “ Keeping Your Kids on God’s Side” as a starting point for the discussion. You can expect to learn more about the impact that a non -biblical worldview is having on the faith of our kids, but also be provided with practical ways to face these challenges with confidence. The secular culture is challenging our young people and apologetics conversations are no longer an option but a necessary part of our kids discipleship- the younger the better!

When Denise isn’t hanging out with youth and young adults she can be found playing Star Wars and Super Hero Lego with her grandson and answering questions like “Gramma is Thanos going to heaven?”

(P.S. By her own admittance she  wasn’t adequately prepared to discuss the salvation of a Marvel Comic Villain that day!)

Yet another good reason for you to come to this seminar!

SOCIAL MEDIA AND CHILD DEVELOPMENT

Social Media and Child Development – Helping Our Young People Navigate an Increasingly Online World

Ever feel like your child is growing up in a completely different world than you did? Most of our young people have never known a world without social media, cellphones, and instant access to almost all the knowledge known to mankind. The internet and social media is here to stay and it can sometimes feel like parents are at a loss for how to help their children navigate this somewhat foreign landscape. These platforms provide incredible opportunities for community, creativity, innovation, and education, but unfortunately, there is also rising evidence of the possible negative implications for our young people’s mental health. In this seminar, Dr. Johnson will present both the advantages and disadvantages that come with social media use and will discuss how we can build resilience in our children as they are confronted with this unavoidable reality of our time.

Sunday, May 2nd, 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
