Safe Sanctuary Policy

Here at Bemus Point UMC, we believe that church should be a safe place for everyone. Many years ago our church developed a policy to live out our unwavering commitment to the physical, emotional, and spiritual safety of all our children, youth, and vulnerable adults, as well as the volunteers who work with them.  In recent years, this policy has been updated and renamed “Safe Sanctuaries.”



 

What’s in our Safe Sanctuary Policy?

You can read a copy of our Safe Sanctuaries Policy here or pick up a paper copy from the Welcome Desk in our Gallery.

 

Our policy has three basic purposes:

  • To ensure that the volunteers who work with children, youth, and vulnerable adults are screened (including a basic background check) and trained properly
  • To establish safety policies for church activities
  • To establish a clear procedure for responding to and reporting allegations or incidents of abuse

 

Why do we need this policy in our church?

Safe Sanctuaries is all about making our congregation a safe place where anyone may experience God’s love and fellowship within a community of faith that respects healthy boundaries.
