Safe Sanctuaries

It's important for us at West Market Church to ensure the safety of all the participants in our programs -- children, youth, volunteers, and parents. In order to provide a safe environment the church has adopted Safe Sanctuaries policies to which our employees and volunteers are expected to adhere. Below you will find our policies as well as a video training. In order to volunteer in our children, youth or family ministries, you must do the following:

  1. Print and complete the Volunteer Application Form, including the portion that authorizes West Market Street UMC to obtain a background check.
  2. Read the Safe Sanctuaries Policy and the Safe Sanctuaries Virtual Communication Policy.  Watch the Safe Sanctuaries Training Video.
  3. After reading through the policies and watching the video, take the 10-question test at the bottom of the page. If you do not correctly answer 100% of the questions, you must start over.  You can take the test numerous times until you answer 100% of the questions correctly.  Once you have successfully completed the test by answering 100% of the questions correctly, print your test results.
