We Are a Safe Sanctuary Church

University United Methodist Church affirms that all children, youth and vulnerable adults have the right to safe sanctuary. We provide an environment in which all people are safe from neglect or abuse. This means that everyone who works with children or youth, whether paid or volunteer, have had background checks, have covenanted to never be alone with a child (the “two adult rule”), and are required to report suspected instances of abuse or neglect. Questions?
