(summer months only) RA’s & GA’s (during regular school season)SECURITYWe know as parents, your greatest concern as you drop your children off at church, is their safety. We have taken several measures to ensure your children are safe, secure, and enjoying their time here.We have adopted and put into place several policies concerning who may work with the children. One of them is that all children’s volunteers must go through a national criminal background check. If there is any doubt of a person’ reliability or trust, they are not permitted to work with the nursery, children's ministry, or youth ministry. Our goal is your children's safety when they attend church.
