We have all been very overwhelmed by the tragic event that occurred on Sunday, November 5 at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. As your Pastor, I wanted to communicate with you about what we are doing as a church staff, Guest Services, and Parking/Security team with regard to security on Sundays at HHICC.
We had a security assessment completed 18 months ago and from that meeting, here are the things that have been addressed:
In the past, we have tried to secure off duty police offers for Sundays and this is not something that Beaufort County formally provides for churches. Moving forward, we have decided to hire a private security company, Coastal Security Services, which will include a uniformed security officer on Sundays and for our Christmas Eve Services.
Maintaining a safe campus is very important to me as your pastor. Please let me know if you any questions by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
