Safe Sanctuaries

Fellowship UMC is pleased that we are a SAFE SANCTUARIES church.  This means that we have chosen to adopt additional policies set forth by the United Methodist Conference regarding child safety.  As a part of the Safe Sanctuaries program we require all children (infant-5th grade) to be registered prior to participating in any events, including worship.  This allows us to better serve your family and ensure the safety of your children while in our care.  Additional safety policies include the following:

  • Staff and Volunteers working directly with children have submitted to a background check.
  • Many of our stafff/volunteers are certified in infant/child CPR.
  • We ask that all children/youth must be in their age appropriate classroom or sitting with you in adult worship. (In today’s times it is simply unsafe to allow children to “roam” around.)


Upon drop off at any church program you will be asked to review our Safe Sanctuaries brochure and register your child.
