Sunday, February 12, 515pm at Grace Snellville
The Greek word porneia means “sexual immorality,” and it was one of the four things the early church agreed should be avoided by anyone who follows Jesus. Obeying that command today, however, seems far more complicated (and even overwhelming) than it may have been in the first century. But if we are going to follow Jesus well, we must wade into the murky world of technology, social media, and sex addiction.
This Sunday evening at the 515, we will be hosting a candid conversation with two experts–Bob Rodgers, CEO of Streetgrace, and Elizabeth Moore, licensed therapist (scroll down for bios)–to address questions, concerns, and practical ways we can both guard and gain freedom in this delicate but crucial area of our lives.
So whether you are a parent or a student, a group leader or a group participant, a man or a woman, married or single, or simply somebody with internet access or a smartphone, we believe this conversation will be powerful.
We are calling it a “Fireside (Snap)chat” because we are inviting you to submit your questions on this subject to us through Grace Snellville’s Snapchat account, @gracesnellville. If you don’t know how to use Snapchat, then it is simply a reminder of how much we need to learn in order to be up-to-date in our discipleship of the next generation! Also, we will provide time for questions to be submitted anonymously on paper at the event itself.
