The Siouxland Modern Media Committee of the Netherlands Reformed Churches of Sioux Center, Rock Valley and Sioux Falls was formed to generate awareness and provide guidance concerning modern media to our church and school communities.
Our goal is to instruct adults and children in the use of technology according to God’s Word and His commandments.
“Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions. “Ecclesiastes 7:29
The Siouxland Modern Media Committee (SMMC) started upon request from the consistories of the Rock Valley, Sioux Center, and Sioux Falls Netherlands Reformed Congregations to provide advice to our congregations regarding modern media and technology.
The SMMC, in close cooperation with the three consistories mentioned above and other NRC committees, will assess the various usages of modern media from a Biblical perspective, determine how they may affect a Biblical lifestyle, and provide suitable advice and materials that are useful to our congregations.
The SMMC mandate is as follows:
1. Research modern media and technologies and assess them from a Biblical perspective.
2. Generate awareness and provide direction to our church and school communities.
3. Provide practical guidance for protecting our families from the dangers of modern media.
4. Promote our denominational assets and perspectives about modern media.
5. Provide recommendations, ideas, and assistance to the consistories and NRCS Technology Committee to set guidelines and policies.
Therefore let us consider Ephesians 6:10, “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
