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.
Thank you for visiting our website. We invite you to visit our church and think you will find our church family very friendly and welcoming. We love God and want our church to be a lighthouse for the community.
If you want to be included on the email list that gets the prayer concerns/updates or you want to add someone to the prayer list contact Kaylene at email@example.com or call her at (270) 849-4768.
