Ministry Safe Day-Sunday, October 14, 3:00-4:30pm

Thank you for your willingness to serve at Leavenworth Church of the Nazarene! There are three specific steps that we require for each volunteer serving in ministries involving children and youth. These steps are as follows:

1. An updated background check every two years.

2. An updated acknowledgment (quiz) that you have reviewed the sexual abuse awareness training video every two years.

3. A signed statement that you have reviewed the church policy booklet related to safety for children and youth.

We want to be sure that everyone serving within the following ministry areas has completed all of these steps: security, KidCheck, Upper Valley Christian School, Vacation Bible School, nursery, children's ministry, youth ministry, and church staff.

We will be sending out email links by Tuesday, October 2, to everyone serving in an area involving children or youth who has not completed the required steps. You are welcome to complete any missing steps when the new link is sent to you. Or, you can come to “Ministry Safe Day” on Sunday, October 14, from 3:00-4:30pm, to complete the required steps as a group. During our “Ministry Safe Day” session, you will have the opportunity to have assistance from church staff members as we tackle the task of helping everyone with the required steps. This session will take place in the church sanctuary.

If you have completed all the safety steps required, then you do not need to attend the Ministry Safe Day event on Sunday, October 14. If you have any of the safety steps outstanding as of Sunday, October 14, we want you to attend this event so that we can work through the steps together.
