Good Shepherd hosts Internet safety course
The community is invited to attend the double session, internet safety program “Internet Safety 101: Empowering Parents” presented by Northumberland County Sheriff “Chuck” Wilkins, Wednesday, Oct. 17 and Thursday, Oct. 18 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 1717 Hampton Hall Road, Callao.
Participants completing the two sessions will receive the DVD “Computer Cop” for home use. There is no charge for this event and no advance registration is needed. “Internet Safety 101” is a multi-media, educational program for parents, grandparents, guardians and educators, covering current and emerging online threats.
After attending this presentation last spring, Dave Bertsch of Montross, said: “This presentation gives extremely important – even vital – information to anyone who mentors youth. Every parent or grandparent would do well to attend this training as soon as possible. Internet pornographers have many tools and ways around the law to ensnare our children. We need to be prepared to fight them for the safety and healthy development of our youth. This course is an important way!”
This year marks the 30th year of ministry for the Good Shepherd Family, reports Pastor Mike Ramming of Good Shepherd.
“By hosting Sheriff Wilkins for this important internet safety program, we are extending our 30th anniversary celebration into this new year,” Shepherd said. “The Good Shepherd Family cares about your family and wants to assist in keeping you safe and strong! Please join us for this valuable training!”
