Christ Church will be conducting a training session for Keeping God's People Safe, the  Episcopal program to prevent child and youth sexual abuse. This is for anyone holding a leadership position in our children's and youth ministries, as well as Christ Church staff. If you will be in one of these positions in the upcoming year, and you were trained more than five years ago, or are new to this kind of position and have not yet been trained, we will be contacting you to sign you up for the training.
 
Parishioners from other nearby churches will be attending as well. We will meet in the McClain Room.
 
Any questions, please contact Melissa Durbin, melissa@christchurchwinnetka.org or Megan Miller, megan@christchurchwinnetka.org. Thank you!
