safe sanctuary

The members of Bethel United Methodist Church seek to honor God’s love for children and to protect their well-being and to prevent any form of abuse, harassment or neglect. Our goal in response to Jesus’ teaching is to provide a safe, secure and loving place for the development of children in the care of teachers and leaders who minister appropriately to their needs.

With that in mind, we have developed a Safe Sanctuaries Policy which will give guidance and direction to all members of the church so that Bethel will be a safe place for God’s most special gifts.
