    End Time: Fri 21, July 2017, 9 p.m.

    Let’s Talk Technology was created for the purpose of engaging people of all ages in Christian fellowship around subjects that touch their daily lives. The last Technology Night event brought 130 people together to learn about many topics and get answers to their questions. This year's event will be even better.

    *Attendees will learn how to care for the precious photos that they are taking with their smartphones and tablets. These devices are always ready when you want to snap that picture of family and friends. But what do you do with those photographs? You want to look at them. You want to share them. But how? What happens to your photos if your phone is lost or broken? We will answer all those questions for you next week. Technology experts will show you how to use your own phones, tablets and laptops to care for those priceless photos.

    *We will have a Google Certified instructor teaching at the workshop.

  • Jonathan Holmes' Biblical Friendships Talk is Now Available

    Pastor Jonathan Holmes recently discussed principles from his book, The Company We Keep: In Search of Biblical Friendship. Listen to his talk here.

    Friendship: it’s one of the simplest of human relationships in comparison to marriage or family relationships, yet it’s one of the least understood and practiced. For all of our progress in making connections through Facebook, Twitter, and other social media, people are consistently experiencing loneliness and growing disenchanted with the whole notion of friendship.
