As most of you are aware, we have spent significant time and money in the past 2 years improving the appearance and upgrading the facilities of the church. Now, given tragic events out of Texas and elsewhere in our country and the world, it is imperative that we consider the security of our total campus. As a result of concerns from some members, and as a necessary response to those recent news events, the facility care committee met recently with the Flagler County Sheriff’s Department and its security Task Force. The result of that meeting is a big list of needed upgrades and security measures if we are to meet our responsibilities to ensure the safety of our members.
A full written report will be forthcoming from the Sheriff’s Department. That report will be available to you.
Needless to say, we are going to need money and volunteer participation if we are to meet even a minimum level of church security. We will meet with Security Companies as appropriate. In the meantime, we need to be aware of members who have expertise in any of the following areas:
- Grant Procurement
- Weapons Management and Enforcement
- Security Backgrounds
- Building Security Organization
- Technical security preparation and maintenance
If you can be of help in any of these or allied areas, we need to know of your willingness to participate. You can do so by informing our church office, who will forward the details to me.
Thanks for your attention and interest. It is important in today’s world that we have more than a “head in the sand” approach to the safety of our valued worshippers.
