Free Screening of Award-Winning Documentary "Screenagers" on 1/29
Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that with her own kids and learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well. If excessive screen time is something you and your family struggle with, you don't want to miss High School Ministry's screening of the award-winning documentary "Screenagers" on Monday, January 29 at 7:00pm in the Sanctuary at HCL's Janesville Campus.

Guest speaker and author of "Sip, Savor and Drink Deeply" Deb Burma will be presenting at our upcoming Women's Ministry event on Saturday, February 3 from 9:00-11:00am at the Janesville Campus.
