IN THIS EDITION
VIRTUAL EVENT: Engaging the Transgender Battle for God’s Glory
TRAINING: How To Engage the Culture the Way Jesus Intended
Four Ways Parents Can Help Their Children Use Social Media Wisely
AT THE CAPITOL: Defending Life and Churches in Wisconsin
In the Media
“Kids are not experiments. When a child is struggling, they need compassionate care – not experimental hormones and surgery,” writes Family Policy Alliance. (Family Policy Alliance is one of our frontline national partners.)
As part of Family Policy Alliance’s vision to see “dangerous [transgender] intervention[s] … unthinkable across the United States” while also making real help and counseling for hurting children and their parents easily accessible they are hosting the Help Not Harm Summit, Friday, October 15, 2021 (that’s tomorrow!).
During this virtual event you will learn about transgender ideology, why this issue isn’t just about morality, what you can do to make a difference, how to talk to your children about sex and gender and the medical perspective on transition.
This is an important issue impacting the mental, emotional and physical health of our children. Whether you’re a parent, student, young professional or grandparent this is a valuable event to be informed and equipped to stand up for our God-given identity. We urge you to register for this important summit.

Are you frustrated with the amount of time people are spending on their phone these days?
People are lonely and desperately pursuing community. The time they spend on their phones is their way of feeling connected and less alone. While this is a false feeling of connection, it does dull the momentary ache to been seen and known.
The good news is, you can help them KNOW they’re not alone and remind them that they are seen by a good and generous God.
By attending The Engagement Project’s small group facilitator training this weekend, Saturday, October 16, 2021, you will learn how to guide individuals through a transformative experience where they learn about who God is and His design for community and friendship. The Engagement Project was created by Del Tackett, producer of The Truth Project, to mobilize every believer to engage the world around them in the primary manner Jesus has instructed us. Del Tackett will be doing the training Saturday.
This event is for pastors, ministry leaders and church members who want to impact their community with the Gospel. You can register or learn more HERE.
Christianpost.com reports that George Barna, a prominent Christian researcher, recently offered four ways Christian parents can combat the media’s influence in children’s lives.
- Monitor what kids are being exposed to.
- Minimize their exposure.
- Mediate, meaning serve as the mediator between what the media is teaching and what the Word of God says
- Moralize. By this Barna means helping young people understand the difference between right and wrong.
Barna says all of this is ultimately about worldview. Building a biblical worldview needs to start early, guided by the Word of God and parents, not social media and online influences.
Julaine Appling encouraged parents to not only help their children with wise social media consumption but to also intentionally help themselves and model healthy behavior toward social media: “The influence of media on our young people via digital devices is huge. When parents step in to monitor, minimize, mediate and moralize, the influence is diminished and counteracted. Digital addiction is very real — for all age groups. So first parents need to be sure they are appropriately monitoring their own use, and then actively engage to protect their children.”

This week Julaine Appling and SharaLee Nichols gave testimony on four bills, three were related to the life issue and one was had to do with not discriminating against churches with private schools.
SENATE BILL 591 (companion to Assembly Bill 593) – Requires that women who receive a chemical abortion via a drug regiment be told that the process may be reversed after the first dose and also adds some reporting requirements for abortionists and abortion facilities.
SENATE BILL 593 (companion to Assembly Bill 595) – Prohibits abortions done solely based on sex, race, color, ethnicity, national origin, or fetal anomaly
SENATE BILL 503 (companion to Assembly Bill 493) – Would prohibit abortion providers from receiving funds under the Medical Assistance program (public monies)
SENATE BILL 584 – would permit churches with private schools to establish a policy to allow for persons who are licensed to conceal carry to do so during church services, etc.
To learn more about each of these bills, whether we favor or oppose the bill and track its movement through the legislative process click HERE.
While we are on a mission to equip you — the citizen — to defend God’s plan for marriage, family, life and religious freedom in your own community we realize you may not be able to take time away from work or find a babysitter to watch your kids to attend a public hearing and give testimony. However, doing so is still critically important so we proudly and intentionally stand in the gap practicing what we preach and defending the values we cherish. You can ensure that we are able to keep doing this work on behalf of all of us by financially investing HERE.
