CENetwork of the ELCA presents “How to Create a Safety Plan for Your Church”
We are dedicated to life long faith formation in the home and congregation. Our goal is to help churches create a customized plan to meet a congregation’s safety needs in a building, with people, who are worshiping, learning, and serving.

Our whole church approach is for anyone seeking to intentionally create a peaceful environment for people of all ages. Attend a four-hour workshop, on April 14 in Omaha, Nebraska. Walk away with a customized guide and training method useful in addressing all your unique building, people, and activity concerns. For more information, and to register for this $25 workshop, go to www.faithfulteaching.org and download the ‘Table of Contents’ for the generic safety template. This document will give you the full scope and sequence of a customized safety guide.

Your $25 registration fee covers:
A Generic Safety Template and Training Manual
Refreshments provided: Please bring a sack lunch and a laptop or tablet w/usb port. iPad do not have usb ports. Participants download the generic template from a secure thumb drive (yours to keep) and begin to customize it during the workshop. The training manual is provided in a binder, and also as an electronic file on the thumb drive.
Workshops are from 10-2 p.m. on Saturdays and seating is limited!

During the workshop we will fully consider four of the most frequently asked for topics:
• Active Shooter Lock-down
• Screening Volunteers Who Work with Children
• Transportation Issues for all ages, including seniors
• Training and Drills

Rest Assured! This approach does not replace all the hard work currently being done in your church. It incorporates your existing programs and best practices in a way the entire congregation can support. Increased awareness and support will lead to greater cooperation, reduced anxiety, and increased confidence. We hope to see you at workshop soon!
