A note to volunteers helping with this ministry, Safe Church certification needs to be completed before we can begin our sessions (see note on Safe Church below.)
Safe Church is now available online. This is a general church requirement for all vestry, eucharistic ministers, ushers, any working with our children and youth. Once completed, submit your certification to Rev. Beck, either hard copy or email. Those who serve here from other places seasonally, you may have already taken this training in your home diocese. It is the same training and we do need to have record of it in the church office. Additionally, note that there is a Part B required by the Diocese of Maine. See the Dio.
