Sunday Service February 17:
We’ve all seen and heard the shocking and disturbing news reporting from active shooter situations in schools, churches and public gatherings. Unfortunately, this is the reality of the world in which we now live. We think “But it couldn’t happen here”, and hopefully that remains true. But would you know what to do and where to go if it happened in our church?
Steps to keep us as safe as possible in this unlikely event will be explained. Jim will share some of the thinking behind this national program and how it affects us in our Sunday morning worship services and in other meetings which are held in our church building.
