One of our responsibilities as Christians is to prepare ourselves, our families, and our parishes to be safe and prepared for life’s eventualities so we can assist ourselves and others.
This interactive workshop will provide an overview of security precautions and common-sense preparations for potential disaster events.
We cannot make you experts in a 75-minute workshop, but we can get you thinking and provide some useful resources.
Presenters: The Rev. Thomas R. Margrave and Mr. Michael Hardin
There is no cost and once registered you will receive a Zoom link and password.
