Safety Sabbath in North America
How do we prepare for the worst? How do we keep our institutions, schools and churches safe – most importantly, how do we keep our members safe? Adventist Risk Management has prepared excellent resources that are being highlighted tomorrow, March 23, on Safety Sabbath. In addition to Earthquake drill and fire drill guides; they’ve included active shooter drill guides and an active shooter situation video to help educate us on what to do. Much thought and planning has gone into these resources from ARM. If your church is not prepared to actually conduct the drill on Sabbath, March 23, you can plan ahead with these resources to begin the process of readiness and educating members in the weeks to come.

The students go through the entire writing process, learning all the steps to become a published author. How incredible is that for these young authors?
