Resource Center: Showing Love with Safe Touch
Church, the physical place where the body of Christ gathers, should be an emotionally and physically safe place for children. As Christ-followers, we must work diligently to follow safe practices when interacting with and caring for minors. Today, I’m sharing a link to a Darkness to Light video called “Showing Non-Touch Warmth and Caring.” This short clip emphasizes the ways Sunday school teachers, youth pastors, pastors, church members and friends can show affection and concern without crossing physical boundaries.
To learn more about keeping children safe, visit d2l.org. ACGC offers the four-hour Stewards of Children Training to Advent Christian churches for $10 a person (cost of workbook). Also, watch your mailbox for the spring edition of the Advent Christian Witness that will be fully dedicated to church safety.
