Aldersgate United Methodist Church has established this Safe Sanctuary Policy and accompanying procedures to demonstrate our absolute and unwavering commitment to the physical safety and spiritual growth of all of our children and youth and protection of our workers.
The policy document can be accessed below:
Any volunteer or staff member working with our children and youth must complete two steps to become Safe Sanctuary certified.
Step 1: Complete Training either in-person or via the YouTube video .
Step 2: Pass a background check. This can be initiated by filling out this background check form and turning it into the Church Office. Strict confidentiality of all results will be observed.
Your certification is valid for 2 years after the completion of the background check.
Many thanks to Charmie Mantooth and Becky Wright for their hard work on this program.
