With Easter coming, we know churches are preparing for one of the biggest-attendance days of the entire year. There is so much to consider – from music to décor to parking! But one key element that simply can’t be overlooked is security.
We recently updated a ministry guide about child security, and below I’ve used the ministry guide to outline great information in a few key areas, along with best practices on security for children’s ministries.

If you don’t live in the Carolinas, you may not know about all the “winter weather” we have experienced the past few days. Yesterday, our offices were closed and we were able to spend the day with family building snowmen, throwing snowballs, making delicious “snowcream,” and all the other wonderful things that we don’t normally… Continue Reading »
I recently took my son to the Children’s Museum in Waco, Texas, while there visiting my sister. It is an incredible museum full of all sorts of exhibits for any one in that area! There was a variety of different rooms where the children could explore and learn from live animals to international dress up… Continue Reading »
