Featured Reflection

A highlight from our monthly newsletter

 

Safety Improvements

Following the break-ins in May/June, several plans have been put in place to improve security at the church.

  • A strict “no door propping” policy has been implemented, and members coming in for activities or ministries are encouraged to come in pairs
  • Surveillance cameras have been purchased and are in the process of installation. Signs indicating this are on each door.
  • Video doorbells have been purchased to improve both ease of access and security.
  • Door-open alarms have been ordered to eliminate door propping.
  • The outside door locks have been changed.
  • Abandoned vehicles were removed
  • The keypad system has been recoded— If you don’t have the new code, please call Marie Bakke in the office.
  • Some initial trimming of trees and bushes was done to keep doors clear and improve visibility. Additional yard work is scheduled make the grounds appear more kept up and
    reduce any light interference.
  • Joe & Joanne McKinney attended a safety workshop at the Synod Assembly
  • Fairfax police are making frequent passes through our
    parking lot

We continue to assess what we can do make our building safe while remaining inviting.


We especially thank all of the people who have put in hours cleaning up from the break-ins and implementing security measures—there are too many to name individually! We also thank everyone in the congregation for supporting the safety measures, even with some of the inconveniences they bring. BLC remains a welcoming church because of our people!
