All staff must complete required Clearances and attend Safe Sanctuary Training.

     So that we will be in compliance with our Safe Sanctuary Policy, all volunteers of First need to update their Act 33 and Act 34 clearances.  Leadership in the church is highly encouraged to obtain their clearances as well since they hold perceived positions of authority for our children.  Updates to clearances need to be on file in the church office by October 30. 2021.  There are direct links to the clearance applications on the conference website (follow Resources >> Safe Sanctuaries >> Direct Links).  If you need assistance obtaining the clearnces, please call the church office so that Audrey may assist you.  (Paper forms are also in the office for those who prefer to complete and mail them instead of online)

     Chris Kindle of the Conference Discipleship and Spiritual Formation office will be offering this training for the entire Indiana district.  It is a NECESSARY training for all those who are currently working with children, those who anticipate volunteering in the future and those in leadership positions in the church.  The training will be held on October 30, 2021 at 10:00 AM at the Covenant Center.  It is approximately a 2 hour training session.  If you plan on attending, please call the office at First (724-548-4312) so we have an approximate number of those attending.
