"You are the light of the world.  A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.  Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, that your light shines before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in Heaven."

Matthew 5:14-16

Safe SanctuarieS

Safe Sanctuaries is the name commonly given by United Methodist Annual Conferences and local churches to their individual efforts to make conference, district, and local church programs welcoming and safe for children, youth and vulnerable adults. 


All staff and volunteers who have regular and direct contact with children, youth and vulnerable adults, are required to undergo a background screening. This involves a background check within the last three years. Additionally, all persons should demonstrate an active relationship with the local church for at least six(6) months before being allowed in a supervisory role in activities involving children, youth and vulnerable adults.
