Safe Sanctuary Policies

Safe Sanctuaries is more than guidelines, policies, and procedures implemented to creat an environment in which children, youth, and the adults who work with them have boundaries of safe space.

Safe Sanctuaries is an overt expression of a congregation in providing a safe place where children and youth may experience the abiding love of God and fellowship within the community of faith.

First UMC Gastonia is a congregation which has put into place policies and procedures in which to make our church a safe place for children and youth.

All volunteers with children under 18 have participated in training sessions, background checks, and have made a commitment to create a space where children can all grow as children of God.
