How to Protect Your Church from Sexual Misconduct March 21, 2017

How to Protect Your Church from Sexual Misconduct

Tuesday, March 21, 2017
6:30 p.m.
MBA office

This conference considers means of prevention and supervision that help prevent incidents of sexual misconduct in the church. Further consideration is given to responding when an incident of sexual misconduct occurs. More and more of our churches are having registered sexual offenders visit and request membership. What is the best way to handle this? That question is answered.

State missionary Lee Wright will lead this conference.

This conference is free, but pre-registration is requested. To pre-register, click here or contact the MBA office, no later than Thursday, March 16.

Please note: if not enough participants are pre-registered, the event is subject to cancellation.

This, and other like events, are made possible by donations to Associational Missions and the Cooperative Program.

Delicious cakes will be auctioned off to the highest bidder, so come prepared to buy your favorite cake! The cake that sells for the highest amount will be declared “Mobile’s Baptist Baking Champion 2017”. We will have a silent auction that night as well with a multitude of items, products and services from local businesses and other sponsors.

Yes, we want to help pray for the people on every street in Mobile County!

HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?

• The first step is to decide to participate. There is registration for individuals and churches below.

• Second, decide who will lead for your congregation. A member of the prayer committee, evangelism committee, Sunday School or Student ministry are possible leaders and participants.

• Third, decide which areas you want to prayer walk/drive between now and October 2017. Teams of two or three begin nearest the church and work outward. Some members/teams will prayer walk their neighborhoods and neighborhoods around the church many times. Participants who want to help prayer walk other parts of the County can come back to this web site to see which Street Atlas pages still need to be chosen.

• Please register below to let us know your church will participate, the contact person and the pages of the Keith Maps 2016 Street Atlas you choose. It is great that the people on some streets will be prayed for many times.
