SafeSanctuaries“Then Jesus took a little child and put her among them; and taking her in His arms, He said to them, ‘Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me.’” Mark 9:36,37

Because we believe that Jesus taught us to care for His children and youth, we at Trussville First commit to the practice of safe supervision of your children and youth. Our Safe Sanctuary policy sets standards for the supervision of all children, youth, and vulnerable adults in our care. Thus, in covenant with all United Methodist congregations, we adopt policies for the prevention of neglect and abuse.

Therefore, as a Christian community of faith and other United Methodist congregations, we pledge to conduct the ministry of the gospel in ways that assure the safety and spiritual growth of all children, youth, and vulnerable adults and those who minister to them.
