Imagine a delightful three-course menu of freshly prepared, authentic Celtic recipes and treats in a cozy setting, complete with a roaring fire and beautiful Celtic holiday decorations. 

All ages are welcome (no childcare; young ladies are welcome to sit with their mothers/sisters/grandmothers).

About our guest speaker: Michelle Moritz

Michelle Moritz is a woman of many talents and gifts. She works for the Department of Defense as a psychiatric nurse practitioner serving our Veteran population. She also works with at-risk youth who have been human trafficked, abused substances, and/or have been in troubled homes.

"I am a mom to five and grandmother to five. I have been married to Frank for 30 years. I love love, love to travel as much as I can anywhere," she said.

Moritz also serves as head deaconess at the Mansfield church.

"Most importantly - I am a child of the most high God and He alone is the reason I live and move and breathe," said Moritz.

Join us for an eye-opening look at the impact technology has on us and our children.

Based on the books "12 Ways Your Phone is Changing You" by Tony Reinke and “The Tech-Wise Family” by Andy Crouch, this seminar will provide information, ideas and principles that can help guide you and your family through the tech-saturated world that we live in today.

Prepare for a day of engaged learning!

Cost is $10 per person, childcare available for an additional fee ($10 for first child, $18 for two children; space is limited). Lunch and materials included.
