Safe Sanctuary Policy


The members of Good Shepherd United Methodist Church seek to honor God’s love for children and youth 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 Good Shepherd will be a safe place for God’s most special gifts.

If you would like to review the complete Safe Sanctuaries Policy, please contact the Children’s Minister,Cassie Davenport, at
