What would you do if...

In our modern world, it seems as though hardly a day goes by without hearing about a shooting, a devastating fire, a severe weather event, or some other violent situation that results in people being injured or even killed. Our new Safe Congregations Committee Chair, Max Goelling, would like to remind all of us to be more aware of our surroundings and to know how best to respond to emergencies such as a fire in our building, medical emergencies, and other events that can compromise our ability to gather peacefully. Over the course of the last few weeks, Max has taught classes, reviewed all of our policies, and coordinated with other committees to create new solutions to some of our safety challenges. In the coming weeks, he will distribute flyers, hang posters, and start training our new Watchful Shepherds. His goal is to help us all feel safe and to respond properly to emergency situations.
