Kentucky Conference Safe Sanctuaries Policy

Fern Creek UMC is a Safe Sanctuaries Church. All of our security team members have completed Safe Sanctuaries Training.

A Security Team member:

  1. Must be at least 18 years old, male or female
  2. Is trained by FCUMC, every 3 years, in Safe Sanctuaries protocol (as required by the UMC to protect children and at-risk adults).
  3. A background check provided by FCUMC is required per the UMC every 3 years, also related to the Safe Sanctuaries initiative.
  4. Has the opportunity to volunteer once or twice a month, to be vigilant to ensure the safety of your church family during: worship services, Sunday school hour, church dinners, Vacation Bible School, weddings, meetings, etc. 
    • This involves observing who enters the building, being sure the doors are locked when needed, seeing that no child or at-risk adult is unsupervised or placed in a vulnerable position.
  5. Security Team members are NOT required to carry a weapon.
  6. The Security Team meets for 30 minutes once a month for updates.
