Updating our Policies for the Protection of Children and Youth
Open Forum: Saturday, Feb. 16
Grace Church / LaVielle Conference Room
We are obligated as Christians to create a safe and welcoming space for all children and youth in our community, as well as those engaged in ministry, to prevent abuse. Christian Formation Director Janis Greenbaum and Vestry Member Chris Ludbrook invite all to have their voices and concerns heard as we update our parish policies for the protection of children and youth.
The Episcopal Church and the Diocese of Missouri updated their protection policies in 2018. Our parish's policies must meet those requirements, but can also go beyond if we choose.
We will be discussing the rules and policies as they relate to all programs for children and youth at Grace Church, including our annual youth mission trip. Click these links to review current policies and forms:
