Safe Sanctuary

Safe Sanctuary

Because we believe that Jesus taught us to care for His children and youth, we commit our church to the practice of safe supervision. A Safe Sanctuary policy sets standards for the supervision of the children, youth, and vulnerable adults in our care. Thus we adopt policies for the prevention of neglect and abuse. Therefore, as Christian communities of faith we pledge to conduct the ministry of the gospel in ways that assure the safety and spiritual growth of all children, youth, and vulnerable adults and those who minister to them. 

Our current Safe Sanctuary Policy is viewable here.
