Making sure our children are safe is a huge priority at any of our BSLC's functions.  As the congregation grows, we want to make sure that our risk level stays at a low.  One of the steps in doing this, is implementing a background check policy.  With this policy, which was approved by both the Elders and the Council, anyone who is 18 and older and volunteers with minors will need to complete a background check.
