When Disaster Strikes

When Disaster Strikes

When Disaster Strikes - Church Safety and Security Planning Workshop

Is your church ready?  Have you planned? Human caused disasters such as fires, or natural disasters such as earthquake or lightning, or even violence against church workers and members are all a current reality.  Preparedness for individuals, families, churches, and our communities is essential. This workshop is provided for the churches in our Presbytery to enter into the conversations and planning that is necessary for the disasters that will come in unexpected ways.

Please ask members of your Session or leaders in your church to join us on Saturday, Sept. 29th at the First Presbyterian Church in Albuquerque from 9:30am - 3:00 pm to work on responses and plans to meet emergencies.  We will hear from some of our churches as they have responded to disasters. Paul Loftis from Church Mutual Insurance will explain the insurance perspective on disasters from their experience.  Sample handbooks and planning procedures will be available. Afternoon workshops will give us practical experience in planning.

Cost is $5 at the door, which includes lunch.
