Creating Safe Environments
Wednesday, December 8 at 2 PM

One important aspect of church leadership is to insure a safe environment for worship and learning. Even in a small church, screening and training of staff and volunteers are important practices in order to prevent abuse and protect vulnerable populations.  We know that virtual programs and social media interactions require an added element of supervision. 

The UCC Insurance Board reminds us of the scope of abuse:


Many congregations have questions about where to find resources. 

This one hour info session will provide orientation to Abuse Prevention Resources from the UCC Insurance Board.   Pastors, Deacons, Faith Formation leaders, Trustees, and HR Committee members are encouraged to attend. Debby Kirk, Faith Formation team leader will provide an orientation to the materials.  Sample templates for policies, background checks and screening, as well as training programs for teachers and volunteers will be reviewed.
