Why Have a Safety/Security Team and Proactive Safety Protocols?Safety means taking reasonable measures to make the place(s) where we meet safe and to be ready to respond to various emergencies, whether natural (such as tornado, flooding), accidental (such as fire), medical (such as heart attack, stroke, fall), or secondary to a violent act. These are several reasons to form a Safety/Security Team or to form proactive safety protocols at church. Contact Mckenzie Hardin, Kaylene Poff, Sam Graham, Josh Veatch or any of the other team members for more information about the Safety/Security Team and to see how you can help. It is NOT a requirement to have a concealed carry license to participate in the program.
