Fall is Here – We’re Busy
Fall is an exciting time of new beginnings, as well as getting back to old routines. Fall is time for congregations to offer abuse prevention training for staff and volunteers who work with children. And it’s time to get ready for Abuse Awareness Sunday.
PLEASE SEND US FEEDBACK about Abuse Awareness Sunday at your church – even if it wasn’t on Sept. 25 (any time is a good time for abuse awareness). We love to hear what you’re doing – and perhaps that can give someone else encouragement, or an idea for next year as we learn together. Send your Abuse Awareness Sunday reports to firstname.lastname@example.org – THANKS!
Carol and I have been hugely busy updating our website and planning for a wonderful Safe Church Ministry Conference Nov. 4-5 in Grand Rapids. Even though Grand Rapids is not the most convenient destination – we hope that you will consider coming. There is nothing quite like face-to-face interaction and networking with safe church team members from across North America. This year, if you absolutely can’t make it to Grand Rapids, you can live stream a piece of the conference right to your own computer using this link. You can even gather some people from your congregation or community to participate together in the Friday evening plenary session and/or the Saturday morning plenary session. These sessions are designed to appeal to a wide audience. Fall is here; it’s a busy exciting time for safe church ministry.
