First Church is committed to creating a safe and nurturing environment in which young people can learn about and experience God’s love. It is the policy of First Church to conduct background and reference checks on all employees and volunteers involved with our youth. To train new employees and volunteers on the policies and procedures of Safe Church and to have a yearly review with all returning employees and volunteers. Background checks will be conducted on existing employees and volunteers every three years. For more information on Safe Church Policies please contact our Safe Church Coordinator, Rev. Vern Swett.
