The official policy of the Kansas East Conference and First United Methodist Church is to require “Safe and Sacred Spaces” training and a series of background checks of anyone who desires to work with children and youth. There are two trainings coming up close by at Independence First United Methodist Church. The first will be Monday, September 13, 2010 at 5:30 pm and Saturday, September 18, 2010 at 9:00 am.
Rev. Dee Williamston will be leading the training. Those who wish to attend should contact 620-331-3840. There is a $30 fee for the training to cover the cost of background checks, but the Church Council voted to cover the cost for all volunteers, so please let us know if you’re planning to attend. Anyone participating should bring a completed application (available in the church office or on the downloads page of the church website).
