Keeping Chapel Hill safe

Keeping Chapel Hill safe

A large part of our most recent Session meeting (the gathering of our Elders) was a conversation about security. I’m sure I don’t need to explain why this issue is near the top (or SHOULD be near the top) of every church leader’s agenda. On the list of “things we never learned in seminary,” I’d say “active shooter protocols” would certainly be at the top of the column. Alas, it is something we cannot and dare not ignore.

And we haven’t! We have taken a number of important measures over the last several years to strengthen security on our church campus.

But there is also way that you can help. We need at least 12-15 more people to bolster the ranks of our security team, serving once a month. All interested parties are welcome, but we’d especially appreciate off-duty or retired law enforcement and military personnel. If you are willing to be considered for that team, please let us know by filling out this form.

I regret that I even must write of such things but such is the world in which we live. I am mindful of David when he spoke to King Saul, bragging of how he was prepared to do battle with a lion or bear in defense of his flock. I feel the same way about my flock. So do your Elders. I thought you’d want to know. Thanks for doing your part.
