Safeguarding God's People training will be offered at Christ Church on Saturday, March 18th, at 10:00 am.
Safeguarding God's People (SGP) is a training program for the prevention of sexual exploitation in communities of faith. Training is designed to help participants understand the overt and the subtle, the intentional and unintentional, ways in which exploitation and harassment occur in church, school and institutional settings. The aim of the training is to prevent exploitation and harassment by making everyone more aware of her/his words, actions, and intentions as we engage together in ministry.

All clergy, church employees, vestry members, lay pastoral care ministers (including Stephen Ministers), spiritual directors, eucharistic visitors, hospital visitors authorized by the church, leaders and facilitators of all adult programs and small group ministries, seminarians, interns and lay chaplains are required to take Safeguarding God's People.
