Safe Sanctuary Training

After Supper at
Wednesday Nite Café
  Because we believe that Jesus taught us to care for His children and youth, we are committed to the practice of safe supervision. We take the safety of our children and youth very seriously, considering it to be a sacred trust. Our “Safe Sanctuary Policy” is a written procedure that sets standards for enSafe Sancutuary logo2 2015suring safe supervision of all children, youth, and vulnerable adults in our care.

  It is important for every person who works with youth, children or vulnerable adults (like our Extraordinary People) to go through the Safe Sanctuary training. This is an hour-long mandatory process to help our volunteers and staff members understand our child protection policy and requirements. Part of this includes giving Central UMC permission to do a background check with ESS (even if you have a background check with another organization).

  You may have been through the Safe Sanctuary training in years past. The North Alabama Conference now requires that we all renew our training each year so that we can stay up-to-date on policy changes. We have attempted to schedule training at a time that is convenient for the largest number of people. Please make every effort to participate. Even if you are not currently a leader with our young people, this training can help you support those who are, and will make you aware of all CUMC is doing to ensure the quality of their care. It will also make you eligible to help with future special events.

  There is no cost for the training. CUMC is committed to covering the costs for background checks, too, but will gladly receive donations toward the costs. Each background check costs us $10. Thank you for sharing in this sacred responsibility!
