A safe church training event was scheduled in January 2020 at Dordt University, hosted and organized by the Safe Church team in Classis Iakota and Classis Heartland. The event was canceled as a blizzard blew in and shut things down. The event was re-scheduled for April, where no blizzard could take it away. Then the Covid-19 pandemic caused another cancellation. So, now it's finally happening, virtually, over Zoom, making it more accessible to more people.
The training event will include a plenary session led by Classis Safe Church Coordinator, Tara Boer and director, Bonnie Nicholas. Break out sessions will feature various topics, Healthy Boundaries, Policy Development, Circle of Grace and Safe and Saavy Cyber Kids (and families).
Feel free to join in on October 31, from 9 am - 11:30 am Central Time. Stay around for informal networking from 11:30-noon. The information for the training can be viewed here.
Please note, that the zoom links for the sessions will be added to the page prior to that day. We do ask that you register by adding your name/information to this Google sheet (there is also a link to registration at the bottom of the training schedule). You can click on the tabs at the bottom of the sheet to register for whatever sessions you plan on joining.
