Safe Sanctuary

Safe Sanctuary

We are a Safe Sanctuary Church, which means we follow the resolutions set forth by the United Methodist Church. Our purpose for establishing this policy and accompanying procedures is to demonstrate our absolute and unwavering commitment to the physical safety and spiritual growth of all of our children and youth.
 
Therefore, as a Christian community of faith and a United Methodist congregation, we pledge to conduct the ministry of the gospel in ways that assure the safety and spiritual growth of our children and youth, and our staff. We follow reasonable safety measures in the selection and recruitment of workers by conducting a background check on volunteers who work with the children and by requiring church membership of at least 6 months before allowing an adult to lead a group. 
 
We have operational procedures in all programs and events, and have a clearly defined procedure (which conform to the requirements of state law) for reporting a suspected incident of abuse.  All volunteers must attend a Safe Sanctuary Training workshop.
