Smart Phone Workshop Do you carry around your phone and wonder what to do with it? Do you see all those hipsters doing things like talk to text and wonder how they manage it? Do you just think there have to be some secret bits of knowledge that you’re missing out on that would help you use your phone to do more? Do you just get tired of asking your grandkids to do things on your phone? Let your smart phone make you smarter! Come to the class and bring your phone! We will work on skills that will make your grandkids envious! You CAN do this and we can help you! The class is free to church members and we are happy to help all ages but it’s geared toward “more mature citizens”! Let us show you how to do things with email, how to set up an event on your calendar and invite your friends to it, how to send photos and attachments, see what’s draining your battery life and how to prevent it! Learn about “do not disturb” for bedtime hours so only family or close friends can call or text after certain hours! Set your calendar (or learn how then) for Saturday, January 13, 2018 at 11:00 am in the CEB and join us as we cover these topics and more! Soup lunch will be served.
