We are committed to providing a safe space where children can grow closer to God.
Our Safe Sanctuaries Policy demonstrates our commitment to the physical safety and spiritual growth of all of our children, youth, and adult workers. This policy expresses our pledge to conduct the ministry of the gospel in ways that assure the safety and spiritual growth of our children and youth. We have a "two-adult" rule which means that no fewer than 2 adults are present and supervising children and youth during all church-sponsored programs, events, or ministries involving children or youth. We follow reasonable safety measures in the selection and recruitment of workers (including background checks) and educate all of our workers with age appropriate policies, boundaries, and procedures (including first aid and discipline). In all of our ministries with children and youth,we are committed to demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ so that each person will be "surrounded by steadfast love..established in the faith, and confirmed and strengthened in the way that leads to life eternal."* For more information about our Safe Sanctuaries Policy and practices contact Pastor Carter and she will be glad to share more!
