During the past year, First Pres formed a security team which has met to discuss and research the security needs and safety standards of the church at the request of Session and the Preschool.
Having a more intentional strategy for a secure and safe church facility is significant in the following ways:
* Additional security measures will better enable the protection of our preschool children.
* Additional security safeguards and limiting building access will help provide a greater safety net for our staff, particularly in the administrative office. It will provide greater opportunity to know who is entering and leaving the building at all times of the day.
* It will facilitate and increase security for all of our members and guests.
Session has fully endorsed the recommended security initiative that will allow us to install security equipment to help us appropriately limit access to the facility and provide a greater safety net for children, staff, members and guests. The approximate cost will be $25,000. Some of the interior cabling and wiring will be done by our own staff.
Please consider partnering with us by making a donation to help advance the First Pres Church Security Initiative. Contributions can be made Online at Designated Giving (using the Giving Type drop-down, select Security Initiative), checks can be made out to First Presbyterian with Security in the memo line.
