In covenant with all United Methodist congregations, Asbury UMC has adopted and implemented a SAFE SANCTUARY POLICY for the prevention of child abuse in our church. Our purpose for establishing this and accompanying procedures is to demonstrate our total and unwavering commitment to the physical, emotional and spiritual safety of all our children, youth, and vulnerable adults.

Volunteer to Work With Children & Vulnerable Adults

All adult volunteers who work with children, youth and vulnerable adults must:

  1. Have a background check done through the company working with our church. Email Susan Hall and she will send you the link to the online background check form.
     
  2. Attend a Safe Sanctuary Training.  Email Susan Hall for the next scheduled training.
     
  3. Complete the CONFERENCE QUESTIONNAIRE, and return it to the church office.  This form must be completed each year.

 

All youth volunteers must:

  1. Be at least 5 years older than the children in their charge.
     
  2. Complete the CONFERENCE QUESTIONNAIRE, and return it to the church office.  This form must be completed each year.

 

Thank you for volunteering at Asbury UMC.  Follow this link to read the SAFE SANCTUARY FAQ.

 

Jesus said, "Whoever welcomes a child welcomes me." (Matthew 18:5). Children are our present and our future, our hope, our teachers, our inspiration. They are full participants in the life of the church and in the realm of God.

 

God calls us to make our churches safe places, protecting children and other vulnerable persons from sexual and ritual abuse. God calls us to create communities of faith where children and adults grow safe and strong. (From The Book of Resolutions of The United Methodist Church. P. 384-386)
