Safeguards for Reducing the Risk
("For you were once darkness, but not you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them." Ephesians 5:8-11)
The Christian Education Commission of the Forest Lakes District is grateful to the Evangelical Free Church of Sheboygan, WI to use materials in their Protection Plan, copyright date 1997, for this publication. While this material has been reviewed by legal council, it would still be necessary for the leadership of your church and your legal counselor to review this document before adopting.
If your church does not have a Protection Plan in place, please use this as a guide in adopting a policy that is suited for your church.
