If you come to know of an accusation against one of these broth-
ers or sisters assigned to your congregation, two elders with knowledge of the circumstances should
immediately contact the Service Department. Specific direction will be provided on how to handle
the case and what kind of report is to be sent to the branch office. For example, depending on who
was involved and where the offense took place, elders from outside your congregation, such as el-
ders serving at Bethel, may be asked to handle the case.
So much for confidentiality
