Safety and security at churches and other houses of worship has become an increasingly important issue in recent years. There have been a number of examples of church security incidents and shootings in the last year that underscore the importance of security while at a house of worship.
"Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought withhis own blood. I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. So be onyour guard!" (Acts 20:28-31)
