I am sure the youth are having mixed reactions as well, including anxiety and disappointment over cancelled gatherings and not seeing friends. I want to be as available as I can be to hear them and you during this time.
I am hoping this plan will help us stay focused on faith and the things we can do to stay safe. God has promised to walk this path with us and cares for our wholeness. As we focus on our physical health let us not forget that we are also spiritual beings. As we isolate our bodies, we will need to work harder to not isolate our souls.

Safety Policy and Forms
All adults who participate in events or meetings must pass a background check. We always have at least two adults when there are youth present. Any one-on-one discussions that need to take place happen within eyesight of another adult. When we have overnight events where sleeping takes place there is always two male chaperones and two female chaperones. The church bus is always driven by a driver with a CDL certification. If you ever have a concern please contact Rev. Bethany ASAP.
All student participants need to turn in a yearly permission form, and all chaperones need a background check every three years.
Financial Assistance for Events
Event scholarships and fundraisers are available for all Youth events and activities.
