Child Safety Policies and Procedure Training and Screening
Safety is Our Goal Sunday, April 27, 2014, 11:30 am Suamico United Methodist Church Sanctuary
All Church Employees, Sunday School Teachers, Youth Leaders, Adult Volunteers and leaders* of groups using Suamico United Methodist Church Facilities are requested to attend.
The purpose of the training is to:
Provide procedures specifically designed to protect children, youth, church staff and volunteers associated with the ministries of the church.
Establish appropriate ways of responding to alleged, reported or suspected incidents of child abuse.
Be in compassionate ministry with all affected persons—the alleged victim, the alleged victim’s family, the ac-cused, the family of the accused and the church family.
In all our ministries with children and youth, Suamico United Methodist Church is committed to demonstrating the love of Jesus Christ at all levels of the church so that each will be “surrounded in steadfast love…established in the faith, and confirmed and strengthened in the way that leads to eternal life.”
*Leaders of groups with children such as Scout organizations, 4H, Mother’s Day Out, etc., are required to partici-pate in training or provide proof of equivalent training and screening from supporting
