We take the security of our church
family and especially our children very seriously! From the training of our
volunteers to our on-site security team, we want you to know we have taken
every precaution to ensure the safety and security of your child.
All of our adult volunteers must
fill out an application, sign a “Character Covenant” & “Child Protection
Commitment” statement, review and adhere to our Child Protection Safety Policy
Manual, pass a background check, have a skillful screened interview with the
Children’s Pastor, and complete the Abuse Awareness Training from Ministry Safe
in order to serve in Kids Ministry.
Ministry Safe is an organization
whose mission is to protect children and those who serve them. They provide the
training and resources that help organizations keep kids safe. For more
information visit their website at ministrysafe.com.
We have everyone who brings their
child to the Kids Ministry to visit out Check In station to check their child
in. Our volunteers will explain the process to parents on how we use name &
security tags as well as the policy for the different age groups.
We have a security team that
patrols the entire campus of First Lavaca during service. There are multiple
security team members throughout the children ministry monitoring hallways,
classrooms, entrances, & exits. All security personally have to pass
our specialized training with many being
emergency personnel, law enforcement, or military.
