In the digital age, parents must be observant, engaged, and informed. We’ll discuss digital realities, strategies, and practical solutions that will enlighten, equip and encourage parents who want to teach their children how to use technology responsibly. The talk will include specific recommendations for filters and detailed explanations of popular apps and parental controls.
You are invited to an evening of gratitude and encouragement. Our focus will be on how to be a welcoming church. We will begin with dinner, and then hear a presentation from Barb Dahlin, a hospitality volunteer and trainer at Willow Creek Community Church for over 27 years.

The holidays can be a difficult time when you are experiencing loss or grief. Sometimes this is a death, sometimes the loss of a job, the experience of aging, a broken relationship, or a family member's sickness. Fellowship's Blue Christmas service is for anyone experiencing sadness during the holidays. Join us for a quiet service of music and prayer as we journey through darkness and look to Christ for light.
