Congregational Safety is everyone’s business and for those of you who are DREs, RE teachers and advisors, board members, and congregation members, this webinar will help answer questions such as …What makes a healthy boundary? What are ‘grooming’ behaviors? And most important, how can we establish and maintain healthy boundaries in our congregations? Practical resources will be offered on how to have  a difficult conversation, the importance of congregational behavior covenants and ways to respond in the event a person with a history of sexual offenses wants to come to your congregation. Special mention will be made of children or youth who offend.
