St. Peter’s is a Safe Sanctuary
Scripture and our United Methodist tradition inform us in our belief that all human life is of sacred worth, perhaps children most of all. The Church is particularly accountable to provide a safe environment for youth and children. It is the purpose of St. Peter’s UMC to conduct all youth and children related events in ways that promote the safety and spiritual growth of all of our youth and children, as well as all of the workers with youth and children who participate in these events.
We have guidelines on providing supervision, driving regulations for outside events, general safety requirements, and overnight events. We have a Code of Behavior for workers and volunteers in the children and youth programs.
We have our certificate posted in our narthex with more details.
