SNOW DATE: February 10.

The Safe Sanctuaries Workshop is designed for congregations who do not have a written Safe Sanctuaries Policy or who need a refresher on editing their policy. The workshop prepares a core team of 4 – 5 to work with the congregation to write a policy, as well as providing information on how to train trustees, teachers, parents and pastors on the implementation of that policy.
 
     Each church should have at least one copy of  the book Safe Sanctuaries: Reducing the Risk of Child Abuse in the Church by Joy Thornburg Melton.  You may also wish to have a copy of the book Safe Sanctuaries - Older Adults: The Church Reponds to Abuse, Neglect, and Exploitation of Older Adults.
