Badge of Hope Ministries and the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office will present a church safety seminar Saturday, Jan. 27, from 8 a.m. to noon at the Franklin County Baptist Association, 785 Butterfield Drive, Union.

The event is being held due to the ever-increasing violence in churches across the nation.

It will provide a wide assortment of church security topics to equip congregations across the county to be informed, prepared and ready.

The event is $20 per person or $100 for a group of eight. After Jan. 13, the price increases to $25 per person with no group reservations.
