This article is part of the Family Faith Formation Toolkit - a collection of resources for equipping ministry leaders, parents, and caregivers with family faith practices and resources, brought to you by Faith Formation Ministries.

In the following links you’ll find creative resources and practices for technology to use both in community and at home. These ideas can be seamlessly woven into existing church programs and into family life.

Technology: In Community and At Home

When we asked CRC pastors to describe the fears of the families in their congregation, worries about technology and raising children in a world saturated with pop culture were common concerns. The resources below can be used by ministry leaders and families alike to begin conversations and engage discussions about tech-smart parenting.

Websites

  • Common Sense Media is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of kids and families by providing the trustworthy information, education, and independent voice they need to thrive in the 21st century. While this organization doesn’t operate out of faith-based convictions, families will appreciate the wealth of resources it provides, including movie reviews, conversation starters, information on technology and social media, research on technology and kids, and more. Not to be missed: their device-free dinner campaign.

  • We love the faith-based perspective on digital parenting found on these two sites: Parent Cue and Family Fire. Each contains helpful posts to share with families.
