Child Protection Policy.pdf

The document that follows is a combination of state & federal requirements and recommendations, helpful guides for identifying child abuse, proper procedures for screening our employees & volunteers, guidelines for maintaining a safe environment for our children and a plan of action for the congregation to follow if we ever find ourselves in the position where we have to respond to charges about one of our staff or volunteers. While this document may seem at first to be overkill, it is the most concise document we could develop and still have all the information and tools we need. It is our prayer that this policy will protect our children as well as give counseling support to those adults in need of healing.

Volunteering with Youth and Children's Ministry

It is the goal of Edgewater Lutheran Church to create a safe and secure atmosphere for all children/youth who participate in activities of this church. To facilitate that purpose, it is necessary to gather certain information from individuals offering volunteer services to children and youths. This information will be used for the sole purpose of helping the church provide a safe and secure environment for those children who participate in our programs and use our facilities. The forms for adult and minor volunteers are below, in addition to an emergency medical release form for children.
