Requirement to work with our youth at MFC

Hey Friends, anyone who has been working with minors in our congregation needs to renew their background checks and go through a training session provided by the Yearly Meeting. This is to bring us in line with the Mandatory Abuse Prevention Standards which were approved at our Yearly Meeting sessions. Our goal is to help maintain a safe environment for the students who come and worship with us. In order to do so we are offering three dates in October, the 9th, 16th, and 23rd during the Sunday School hour to complete this task.  If you are unable to attend a class on one of the Sundays we will work with you on getting the background check and the training done, contact Pastor Jesse.  This is a requirement to work with our youth. Please let us know which Sunday works for you by putting your name and date in the comment section on the “Response Sheet” in the bulletin and drop it in the wooden box on the usher’s table in the foyer. Thank you!
