During 2016, a team of Shalom members participated in the Safe Church training through the Collins Center of Harrisonburg. Shalom’s Safe Congregation Policy was officially adopted on May 21, 2017, and was last revised in April of 2022. Implementation of the policy continues. A one-page summary of the policy is here, to make it a little easier to get an overview.
