Safe and Secure Training

MAY 19 • 4:30pm • WORSHIP CENTER

Dear Grove Family;

On Sunday, May 19th at 4:30 pm we will be doing a “Church-wide Retraining” for our volunteers in the Worship Center.

In 2004 Grove Avenue initiated it’s first church-wide Safe and Secure training. It is our desire to provide our preschool, children, and students an environment that is safe and nurturing. This only happens when our church has been adequately trained and strong procedural guidelines are in place for those who work with our next generation. Over the past 15 years many things have changed here at Grove and in the world. In evaluating our current security protocol, we knew it was essential for the protection of our children we again restructure this program to better fit for our world in 2019.

If you are unable to attend this training, please let us know. The training will be available online after May 19th, and  viewers must pass the online test after watching the videos to provide proof of online training. Participants on the 19th will not be required to take the online test. All Grove volunteers will need to have completed this training prior to June 23rd.

After completing the Safe and Secure training, VBS volunteers will transition to the gym by 6:15. There will be a refreshment time from 6:15-6:30 while volunteers check-in, receive their volunteer shirts and curriculum.  This training will be completed by 7:30.
