CCS is hosting the Digital Safety Course for Parents presented by My Secure Family- Equipping and educating parents to more effectively engage the hearts of their children.

Providing the know-how and the resources to help equip parents with Christ-centered principals in shepherding children’s hearts in today’s digital age.

Technology morphs and changes at lightning speed and kids are just a few clicks away from dangerous content.

Technology is one of the few areas where our children often already know more about the topic than their parents, making this arena difficult to navigate for many parents.

Featuring subject matter experts from a number of organizations, parents will get the latest apps, and updates that will educate and impact healthy family, connection, and community.

MySecureFamily will provide a collaborative place to equip parents on the practice of safe technology, emphasizing positive online behaviors and using the necessary and available tools to connect families to limit exposure to pornography, bullying, and security dangers for our homes.

Childcare will not be provided.
