Church Safety, Security, and Emergency Procedures (part 1 of 5)


Safety and security policies are critical in the church. Establishing and following these procedures will:

  • Take steps toward protecting people (especially children) from people intending to do harm to others,
  • Take preventative steps toward protecting people from a natural disaster or event with the potential to cause harm, and
  • Help protect the church from potential litigation stemming from incidents in which these procedures are necessary (without such a policy, the church is more vulnerable).
  • Unify members and staff in an effort to promote, practice, and provide funding for procedures that ensure peace of mind for all members and guests.
