Safe Church Policy


Throughout the 2012-13 year, a dedicated team updated United Parish’s Safe Church Policy. Combining the best practices, policies, and recommendations from all three of our denominations, United Parish now proudly embraces a policy designed to create and maintain programs, facilities and a community in which members, friends, staff and volunteers can worship, learn and work together in an atmosphere free from all forms of discrimination, harassment, exploitation or intimidation. 

In addition, United Parish is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for all children, youth and volunteers who participate in ministries and activities sponsored by the church.  Our Response Team, made up of Kate Baker-Carr and Ed DeAngelo, is prepared to assist with questions or issues that may arise.  To reach Kate or Ed, email the church office.  We are grateful to our members who devoted many hours to updating and revising this policy and for the volunteers who have been trained in its implementation.
