Safe Sanctuaries is an overt expression in making congregations safe places where children, youth, and elders may experience the abiding love of God and fellowship within the community of faith. 

As a Christian community of faith and a United Methodist congregation, we pledge to conduct the ministry of the Gospel in ways that assure safety and spiritual growth of all our children and youth, as well as all of the workers with children and youth.  We will follow reasonable safety measures in the selection and recruitment of workers; we will implement prudent operational procedures in all programs and events; we will education all of our workers with children and youth regarding the use of appropriate policies and methods (including first aid and methods of discipline); we will have a clearly defined procedure for reporting a suspected incident of abuse that conforms to the requirements of state law; and we will be prepared to respond to media inquired if an incident occurs.
