Safe Sanctuary Policies and Procedures
We celebrate that children and youth are full participants in the life of Epworth United Methodist Church and in the realm of God. As a community of Christian faith we are called to offer welcome, hospitality, education, spiritual growth opportunities, and support to all children and youth. We seek to be faithful to that trust, and we acknowledge that it takes active commitment of the whole congregation to assure the physical safety and spiritual care of all our children and youth.
Abusive behavior or neglect, by any of us toward any one of us, puts all of us at risk. Epworth is committed to being a holy place, an open place, and a safe place in which all persons can experience the love of God. These policies and procedures are an effort to further that promise.
