Bethel United Methodist Church affirms that all children, youth and vulnerable adults have the right to safe sanctuary. Therefore, we are committed to providing a safe and secure environment where our babies, children, and youth can learn, live, grow, and be strengthened in Christian faith. The provision of safe sanctuary applies to all staff and volunteers, clergy or lay, who have direct or indirect contact with children or youth in conference and/or district sponsored events.
