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). And this year it includes parents who want to volunteer in Nursery School or Sunday School classrooms.
All who are taking the training for the first time are required to attend the in person training. The in-person training dates for the Fall are as follows:
Wednesday September 16th, 6 p.m. at St. Stephen’s, Fairview (Child Care provided – you must sign up for child care – please contact Julien)
Saturday September 26th, 9 a.m. at St. Mark’s, Erie
Saturday October 24th, 9 a.m. at St. John’s, Sharon
Saturday October 24th, 9 a.m. at St. James, Titusville
Saturday November 14th, 10 a.m. at Trinity Houtzdale
For those who have already taken the in-person training, you are required to be trained every three years. If you had the training three or more years ago, you will need to either retake the in-person trainings or contact Julien to sign up for the online course.
