Safe Sanctuaries

In September 2012, Church Council approved an official Safe Sanctuaries policy for WAUMC.  This policy is designed to help keep our children, youth, and community safe.  Some of the highlights of the policy include:

               

     -Background checks for volunteers who work with children and youth

                -The “Six Month” rule

                -Supervision procedures for children and youth activities

                -Behavior guidelines for volunteers working with children and youth

                -Plan of response to an abuse claim

In addition, we ask that you help us keep our children, youth and community safe in the following ways:

 

                -Do not leave your children unattended before or after Sunday School.

                -Please return the proper permission slips/medical forms for children and youth activities.

                -Have a heightened sense of your surroundings.

                -Help people identify you by wearing your nametag.
