Covid-19 Re-entry Plan

In response to the COVID-19, Mt. Pilgrim has developed a Re-entry Task Force team. This team is working closely with the Pastor on a re-entry plan for the safety and well-being of its members. The re-entry date is still TBD, due to the number of increased cases in our community.

December is Child Safety Month

Help keep children out of the emergency room by purchasing safe toys and gifts. The most commonly injured part of the body is the head and face area, with the most common injuries being lacerations, contusions, or abrasions.

Tips for giving safe toys to children

  • Read all warnings and instructions on the box;
  • Ask yourself or the parent if the toy is right for the child’s ability and age;
  • Consider whether other smaller children may be in the home that may have access to the toy;
  • Avoid purchasing toys with sharp or rigid points, spikes, rods, or dangerous edges;
  • Check the lenses and frames of children’s sunglasses; many can break and cause injuries;
  • Buy toys that will withstand impact and not break into dangerous shards
  • Look for the letters “ASTM.” This designation means the product meets the national safety standards set by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM);
  • Avoid toys that shoot or include parts that fly off;
  • Gifts of sports equipment should always be accompanied by protective gear (such as a basketball along with eye goggles or a face guard with a new batting helmet for baseball or softball);
  • Don’t give toys with small parts to young children. Young kids tend to put things in their mouths, increasing the risk of choking;
  • Do not purchase toys with long strings or cords, especially for infants and very young children as these can become wrapped around a child’s neck;
  • Always dispose of uninflated or broken balloons immediately. According to the CPSC, more children have suffocated from them than any other type of toy;
