IMPORTANT NOTICE

Under the direction of our elders the deacons are working to implement an organized safety program for Christ’s church. A designated member to serve as a Safety Monitor will be watching the church surveillance cameras, responding to the intercom by the front door, and designated to call 911 if needed during all church worship services. Volunteers to serve as a Safety Monitor would be assigned to work on a rotational basis. A signup sheet will be on the rear table of the church for members who want to volunteer to serve.
