“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

― Margaret Mead

Thank You!

National Volunteer Week is April 18-24. We want to take a moment to thank all of our volunteers that devote time and energy to Safe Church. Your ongoing work for the ministry allows us to continue to work towards a time when our community is free from abuse. Your desire to stay the course gives us the courage and strength to continue our work, knowing that we are surrounded by so many people who believe in this work and are as passionate about it as we are. To our many volunteers - Thank you! Our ministry thrives because of your ongoing efforts!

First 2021 Webinar announced: May 12, 2021

Biblical Perspectives on Human Dignity and How That Shapes the Church's Life Together

What does it mean that human beings are made in the image of God and created with inherent dignity and worth?  How does this impact the way we think about and treat each other?  What do we owe those around us because they are image-bearers of God?  This webinar, lead by Dr. Amanda Benchkhuysen, Director of Safe Church Ministry, will explore biblical perspectives on human dignity and reflect on what it means to live out this truth in our church life together.

One day, Christ will return to establish a kingdom 
where there will be no more tears or heartache or reason to fear, 
where threats of harm, violence, manipulation, and bullying will cease, 
where justice, truth, and goodness will prevail, 
and where every person, 
regardless of gender, age, color, nationality, or ability, 
will be seen, valued, and loved.

Join us in leaning into this hope today.
