Faith UCC tries to adhere to the following safe child principles in order to reduce the risk of child abuse in the church setting.
- All adult volunteers working with children or youth are required to be members of Faith UCC for a minimum of six months.
- Adult volunteers should observe the “two adult” rule. This requires that adults are never alone with children or youth without an adult partner.
- Adult volunteers should immediately report any behaviors which seem abusive or inappropriate to their supervisor.
Faith UCC has had no known incidents of abuse in its 50-year history.
