Safe Sanctuary at Saint Mark

FOR VOLUNTEERS WORKING WITH CHILDREN, YOUTH OR VULNERABLE ADULTS

The following documents may be used to help all volunteers (required for all church employees) working with children and youth to be compliant with Saint Mark UMC’s Safe Sanctuary Guidelines. To become Safe Sanctuary certified, open the “Safe Sanctuary” Presentation (in PDF format). Use this document to fill out the “Safe Sanctuary Training Quiz.” You will also complete Appendices A, B, and C. When you have completed all four documents, please turn them into the church office. Once a criminal background check is obtained, you will be notified of your certification. If you have questions, thank you for contacting Donna Poston, Director of Youth Ministries at 864-882-2603 or click here to send her an email.
