Parents of Teens Seminars Tue, 03 Apr 2018 20:00:03 +0000 Parents of Teens Seminar: Summertime Teen Anxiety

Summer is just around the corner! Teens will soon begin a much-deserved break from getting up early for school, tests, homework, and school activities. They can kick back, relax and just “veg out”, right? Not so fast. Technology and social media have transformed our society, creating a setting in which teens often experience difficulties, keeping them from connecting with and enjoying the environment around them. Increased free time often means more time spent on phones and mobile devices, with constant reminders of terrorism and economic turmoil, not to mention pressure to interact and maintain an identity on social media. During the school year, the structure of classes, homework and extracurricular activities helps to give teens a reprieve. And while summer should be a relaxing, sun-filled time of fun with friends and family, it can easily transform into an endless amount of time spent on cell phones and devices, possibly leading to more, rather than less, anxiety and depression.

Join us May 6 at 9:45am in the Community Life Center Café as we explore this topic and talk about what we might do, as parents, to prepare for summertime with our teens.

Parents of Teens Class // Social Media Class

By popular demand, we will have a second Social Media Class for those who were unable to attend the first class – May 31 from 7:30-8:30pm in the Community Life Center Café.

Come and discuss some of the pros & cons of social media, specifically legal dangers, what to look for, and how to have conversations with your teen about what is appropriate and what isn’t.

Topics that will be covered include: Sexting (and legal ramifications), Apps to be wary of, and Conversation talking points to work with your teens.

Ingomar Church CARE TEAM Tue, 06 Mar 2018 18:24:51 +0000 There is a place for you on the new Ingomar Church Care Team – a way in which you can serve by reaching out in Christian love.

Task-oriented options include a Healing Through Prayer team (praying for the sick), a Telephone Team (extending a voice of caring through phone calls), a Visitation Care Team (visiting the hospitalized or homebound), and a Grief Support Care Team (offering care to the bereaved).

The exciting part about this volunteer role is the flexible schedule, ability to choose one-time or regular care assignments, and the opportunity to share your unique God-given gifts and talents.
