Safe Church Policies
Following the Diocese of California safe church policies, Church of the Resurrection has adopted these guidelines for adult employees and volunteers who work with children and youth in church programs, and all people who have keys to the church. This process brings our congregation into compliance with the Diocese of California safe church policy standards:
- All employees and adult volunteers who work with children and youth in church programs, and all people who have keys to the church, must take an hour-long online course found on Diocesan Whole and Healthy Church Policies Site and complete a background check. Please contact the office to sign up for the training.
- It's a good idea to familiarize yourself with the full diocesan policy, Whole and Healthy Church. This policy is also available in hard copy at the office of Church of the Resurrection.
- Church of the Resurrection will be intentional about ensuring that at least two adults will always be present with any group of kids, and that we maintain a 1/5 ration of adults to youth.
- Additional training TBD will eventually be required for leaders of programs involving youth and children.
