Hillview UMC is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for all children youth, vulnerable adults, and volunteers who participate in ministries sponsored by the church.
In January, the Administrative Council reapproved our policy and set of procedures for use in ministries aimed at reducing the risk of abuse of all kinds for our children and youth as well as protecting the adult volunteers involved in those ministries. We have responded to this need as have scouting programs, the YMCA, and churches across the country. The entire Safe Sanctuary policy is available in the Church Office and on the Christian Education bulletin board.
The Safe Sanctuary Policy reflects our congregation’s commitment to preserving this church as a holy place of safety and protection for all who enter and as a place in which all people can experience the love of God through relationships with others.
