Its that time of year to make sure that everyone, who needs to be, is trained in Safeguarding God’s Children and Safeguarding God’s people. These are two seperate trainings that are often taught at the same time and required for all clergy, vestry members, church employees, and volunteers (e.g. Sunday School teachers). You are required to be trained every three years so if you had the training three or more years ago you will need to either retake the trainings or contact Julien to discuss completing the online course. In addition to these trainings congregations should have background checks (Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance, Pennsylvania State Police Criminal Record Check) done on all lay employees and volunteers that will be working with children. See the list below for training dates and locations. Contact Julien to sign up.
