Parenting and Technology

Helping People in the Digital Age

We may be using digital technology more than ever before. With Zoom calls, virtual schooling, and ubiquitous smartphones, how can we use these devises best? Join us, here at Emmanuel Baptist Church on Wednesdays in May, 6:30-7:30pm, for four conversations grappling with the intersection between people and our screens. Our Youth and Children will have a 4-week class at the same time. There is no fee, Donations are welcome. All adults are welcome (it's not only for current parents!)

speakers

Dr. Josh Scally

Josh and his wife, Stephanie, have been blessed with four children. Josh and Stephanie have been wrestling with virtual school, digital products geared for children, and the use of hand-held devices. Raising kids in  rapidly changing technological waters has brought to bear questions about not just the use of technology but the development of wisdom and character behind the use of technology--for all ages. Josh holds a Doctorate in Theology from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC.
