Caring WellDear Southern Baptist Family,

We MUST do all we can to protect the vulnerable from sexual, verbal and physical abuse within our local church setting. Within our walls, our family and guests must always feel safe. We need to be preemptive in our procedures for safety and abuse reporting. The new materials and website from the SBC and LifeWay provide clear and compelling processes to assist your church in planning for this type of crisis. It can help you enhance your church’s policies, procedures and practices. Take the challenge and protect the people and reputation of Christ’s family!
