TBC Is Updating Its Safety and Security Processes 
In the spring of 2015, the Security Task Force was asked by TBC's Executive Committee to formulate and implement actions that would meet the dual goals of supporting TBC's warm and welcoming culture and creating an environment that is safe and comfortable for congregants. More information about these changes is available here. Information about how these change will affect the Religious School is being sent separately to parents.
