Safe Sanctuary Training

First United Methodist Church of Alexandria is a Safe Sanctuary Church. What does this statement mean? First Church, in covenant with all United Methodist congregations, follows a policy that sets standards for the supervision of First Church children, youth, and vulnerable adults in our care. Everyone that is
currently volunteering or planning to volunteer with our children and youth in 2018/2019 is required to attend a Safe Sanctuary training. Training will held on Sunday, August 26 immediately following worship from 12:30pm-1:30pm. Lunch will be provided. At the training, you will have the opportunity to update your background check.
