  • Internet safety referencing Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat and Tumblr
  • Types of info that is appropriate/inappropriate to share
  • How predators can easily identify your location based on information shared
  • How to be more secure with their apps/devices

  • Facts about the law pertaining to sexting
  • What to do if sent an inappropriate picture
  • Snapchat is not as safe as you may think
  • Cyberbullying and what can I do if I see a concerning post
  • Can we use social media as venue to share our faith and if so what might that look like?
  • Can people tell we are a Christian from our online identities?

Please RSVP to Sara Erb at or 610.777.8441, as space is limited. We look forward to seeing you and your tween/teen.
