Safe-Sanctuaries

FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH OF GROVE

Safe Sanctuary Policy

Our congregation’s purpose for establishing this Safe Sanctuary Policy and accompanying procedures is to demonstrate our absolute and unwavering commitment to create within our ministries a “safe sanctuary” that will foster healthy growth and development in spiritual and other dimensions as we have opportunity to provide ministry.  Safe Sanctuaries, established through the UM General Board of Discipleship (GBOD), is an overt expression of a congregation in making a congregation a safe place where children and youth may experience the abiding love of God and fellowship within the community of faith.
