MINISTRY RESOURCING

Vacation Bible School:
Concordia Publishing House (CPH) offers a new, fresh VBS curriculum each year. Visit their website at www.cph.org/vbs for a wealth of new features designed to assist those planning to host VBS programs. Additional VBS assistance can be found here: VBS Help Website.

Child Safety/Protection:
Several years ago, perhaps due to many events in the news, the District began receiving calls from churches and schools looking for assistance in developing child protection policies. Churches and schools wanted guidance to develop policies to prevent child abuse, while also receiving insight on how to respond should suspected cases arise. In response to those inquiries, a Child Protection Manual was developed. It is meant to be adapted to your ministry setting, in whatever way you see fit, in order to provide for the safety of your children and guidance for your workers. This is a delicate area of ministry, but one that is vital for our children.
