Safety at Scofield Church
Welcome to Scofield Church! Our desire (since 1877!) is for all worshippers and guests to experience God in a safe and loving environment. Therefore we take seriously the need for our congregation to worship in a hospitable and welcoming environment. For policies regarding the safety of children and young people, please see the topic “What Scofield Church Does to Protect Children and Youth” below.
As members and guests gather on Sunday morning for worship and instruction Scofield Church employs a uniformed Dallas Police Officer throughout the hours that the building is open. A trained and properly equipped Safety Team made up of vetted Scofield members assists the officer with constant patrols throughout the building. You can recognize them by the large orange/white badge and lanyard around their necks, as well as their communication earpiece. You are free to stop them and report anything that concerns you. They carry two-way radios and are in constant communication with one another.
The Church is equipped with fire alarms, sprinkler systems and internal panic buttons monitored by staff and leaders.
A careful analysis of the building has been made and the safest exit routes have been identified. In the unlikely event of any kind of emergency, please follow the directives and instructions of our Safety Team. Please feel safe, cared for and welcomed to our Worship at Scofield Church.
