Below are links to resources that may be helpful to congregations that are looking to create guidelines for church safety in the event a situation arises on their property. If your congregation has any materials it would like to share, email them to Synod Communications Coordinator Mike Givler (email@example.com). This page will be updated as new information becomes available.
Find here a link to a video from the Foursquare Church denomination. It gives an overview from prevention to follow through, including using “chaplains” for pastoral care for an ever-enlarging ripple effect of people.
