Safe Sanctuaries schedules 8 workshops


How do you offer dynamic nurseries, Sunday school and children’s ministry events while ensuring the safety of the children and the adults that lead? 

This is a question that every local church faces. Under the leadership of the Rev. Michelle Foster, eight Safe Sanctuaries workshops will explore the myriad of safety concerns found in local churches and practical solutions that participants can take home to make churches a safer place to play, pray and worship.
