Safe Sanctuaries

We seek to provide an environment that is physically, emotionally, and spiritually safe for all persons who enter our doors, especially children, youth, and vulnerable adults.

Safe Sanctuary Policy

Aldersgate United Methodist Church (AUMC) believes that all persons are significant to the growth of God’s kingdom and should have the opportunity to worship, to learn, and to serve in a safe and protected environment. We seek to provide an environment that is physically, emotionally, and spiritually safe for all persons who enter our doors, especially children, youth, and vulnerable adults. We therefore are committed to maintaining an environment where children, youth, and vulnerable adults are protected from abuse and in which church staff, teachers, volunteers, and other caregivers are protected from potential allegations of abuse. To achieve these goals of preventing abuse, and the unfounded assertion of abuse, the following policy has been developed.
