Lone Jack Christian Church has developed and Emergency Response Plan and a Crisis Action Plan that can give congregations some ideas for beginning to work on their own. Thanks to Pastor Ann Kircher for these helpful templates.
The Ready Rating Planning Resource from the American Red Cross is a great place to begin developing a plan for the congregation to continue operating during a time of disaster, pandemic, or community-wide emergency.
Often it is the people responsible for buildings and grounds at the Church who are willing to begin this work since so much is related to the operation of facilities
Best practices: Appoint a Congregational Disaster Readiness Coordinator who will oversee developing, publicizing and rehearsing the plan.
