Who’s In Control? Media Presentation – January 29, 2017

Why is the latest research on media overexposure using terms like “digital heroin” and “electronic cocaine”?  How could an ‘ancient’ book like the Bible provide any guidance for our fast-paced, tech savvy families?  We would love to give you the answers to those questions and many more on Sunday, January 29 at the Bridgewood Church of Christ in East Fort Worth.

My name is Jon McKenzie and I work with the Bridgewood church as the Youth & Family Minister.  Over the last decade I have given many presentations on media, but this new presentation has drastically changed…just like technology.  We are just starting to learn the far-reaching effects that new technology is having on brains, young and old.  I won’t tell you how much TV to watch or that you should destroy every electronic device in your home.  My aim is to provide a thought-provoking discussion starter for you and your family.

We will start on Sunday, January 29 at 9am in the auditorium.  Our first session will focus on 5 trends and tips for modern media.  At 10am we will have our worship service in the auditorium.  The sermon for the morning is titled “Short-Circuit” and we will explore new scientific research and seek guidance from Scripture.  After worship, around 11am, we invite you to join us for a church potluck.  You’ll be our guest so come and enjoy a meal prepared by some of the best cooks I know.  After lunch I will take a few questions and send everyone on their way with an encouraging thought.

There is no cost, other than your time.  I believe you will find Bridgewood to be a welcoming group of sincere believers.  We provide free professional childcare for children ages 3 and below.  During our 9am session there will be Bible classes available for elementary age children.  Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to let us know you are coming.
