Safe Sanctuary Policy

About Us - Who We Are


Saint Andrew’s Safe Sanctuary Policy


As a Christian community of faith and a United Methodist congregation, Saint Andrews United Methodist Church is committed to providing a holy place of safety and security for all children, youth, and vulnerable adults who participate in ministries and activities sponsored by our church.

We work diligently to ensure that our workers – staff and volunteer – have current background checks on file, are trained and informed, and embrace best practices for the health and safety of all. A copy of our policy may be found on file in the church office.
