Safe Sanctuaries Information for the Congregation

Safe Sanctuaries

Training an entire congregation in Safe Sanctuaries may seem a daunting task, but it is important that everyone – adults, youth, children, and visitors – know the basic commitment to caring for children in our churches.

Safe Sanctuaries® is a “social structure that is consistent with the gospel” (¶122) allowing our sanctuaries, classrooms, mission encounters, camps and retreats, and all spaces where we gather to worship and serve God to be places of trust. As you develop and update your resources for keeping our most vulnerable safe from sexual abuse, remember that these and additional resources are available through Discipleship Ministries of The United Methodist Church.
