Recently our church was violated. Pastor David’s office was physically broken into and some classroom doors that were supposed to be locked were left ajar. It appears that nothing has been stolen, but the trust of our congregation has been broken. Our conclusion is that a key from an outside group was used to access the building. Therefore, all the locks have been changed and no new keys will be given to outside groups.
Our church would still like to host outside groups as part of our community service, but we are implementing a new protocol for this to happen.
We are looking for church members to volunteer their time to “host” a meeting. In essence this would require the church member to unlock the door, stay on the premises for the meeting and then lock up afterwards. The church member doesn’t have to attend the meeting but simply be on-site. All 12-Step meetings are open to all people to attend, including hosts. The only requirement is the desire not to drink, use drugs, abuse food, etc. depending on the nature of the group.
If you are willing to offer your time to host a meeting, please contact Brenda or me, Tim Nagel.
