SEEN AND HEARD PARENT CONFERENCE We all want to be seen and heard. Our technology saturated culture aids parents and children alike in connecting and sharing with each other, friends, and family. With all the good technology brings, there are also risks and pitfalls. Join us February 1, 2020 for an energizing day with Walt Mueller of the Center for Parent/Youth Understanding (CPYU). In the morning he will walk us through the natural development processes of adolescents, noting our culture’s intentional marketing techniques to capture the desires of our children. After a catered lunch, Walt will uncover some of the hidden ways technology affects us and our children, while also showing us ways to be faithful followers of Christ in a digital community.    

Seen and Heard Conference, February 1, 2020, 9 am – 3 pm at Clemson Presbyterian Church.  Cost is $40 per couple/ $25 per individual. Lunch is provided. Intended for parents of all ages.  Sign up and pay HERE. For questions, please contact Cheley McDowell: cheley@horizonchurch.org.
