Safe Sanctuaries offers clear child abuse prevention and risk reduction policies that all local Methodist churches have been mandated to have had in place and operational since December 31, 2005. In this packet, you will find the policy, more defined information regarding the individual procedures around some of our unique programs, as well as the needed informational volunteer application forms.
You should be aware that we have gone to great lengths to provide a nurturing, loving environment where you can feel secure in leaving your child. A church should be a safe place, never a place to feel threatened by any form of abuse; whether physical, emotional, or sexual.
Our efforts involve but are not been limited to, background checks, visibility, age requirements, roving monitors, and/or multiple adults in each room.
