Seventh Day Baptists take seriously the responsibility of caring in our churches for those who are most vulnerable. In our culture, children are routinely among the most vulnerable. In an attempt to aid our churches in their ministry to and for children, we have compiled a list of resources meant to aid local churches as they seek to provide appropriate care.
Note: Because Seventh Day Baptist churches are located across the United States and Canada, we cannot guarantee that every resource listed below will provide appropriate guidance in every context depending on local, state and federal laws. Complying with all appropriate laws is the responsibility of local churches and individuals. Because some of the resources below have been created for a particular context, they will reflect features which may not transfer to you or your church’s exact context. We advise local churches with questions about legal requirements in their state to consult legal counsel and/or their insurance provider.
