Safe Sanctuary Annual Review 2021
Each year, all persons who work with children and youth must complete a review of our safe sanctuary policy. Although many of our volunteers aren't serving right now, we want you to be approved for when we are back together.

It is very important that you take a few minutes to review our safe sanctuary policy. The real goal of the review each year is to keep this policy before you so that you are familiar with the state and church policies. You can find the safe sanctuary policy on our website here:

As you take the quiz, it will automatically tell you the correct answer. Please be assured that if your answer comes up as incorrect, but it was simply an issue of spelling, capitalization or punctuation, you are absolutely fine...please consider the question correct. You will get a random number score at the end. The number means absolutely nothing :)

A few important notes I want to be sure to remind you of this year:

1) Even when virtual, the conference is asking that we have a second adult for all children and youth activities. If you need to find out who is approved, please contact a staff person.

2) According to PA policy, all volunteers must renew clearances every 5 years. For many people, the 5 years occurred in 2020, so please check with me if you think your clearances may have expired last year.

3. When in person, all ministry activities should occur in open view. Each room or space where ministry
activities/events occur must be open to public view. It is important we are mindful that rooms are open and that windows aren't blocked in our meeting rooms, this is especially important to consider when we decorate for events.

3) At no time will any safe sanctuary approved workers be permitted to be alone with a child or
youth in an isolated situation. We've found one time when we need to really be aware of this is when we have a roamer scheduled and only one child shows up for an activity. In this situation, we need to either have the roamer stay in the room as the second adult or have the parent/guardian return.
