 New Safe Sanctuary Policy
Policies & Procedures For the Prevention of Child Abuse

Over the past few months members of our Safe Sanctuary Task Force have worked with Reverend Elizabeth “Beth” Perry to revise Newtown United Methodist Church’s Safe Sanctuary Policy.  Reverend Perry, a United Methodist Elder and teacher, has guided many churches in developing, editing and educating Safe Sanctuary policies throughout our New York Annual Conference. Reverend Beth has been a foundational person in NUMC’s policy revision and we thank her for her support and wisdom. This past Sunday (5/31) we welcomed her as she preached on the topic of Safe Sanctuary and presented our revised policy to the congregation at a luncheon following the service.

Below is a link to the revised NUMC Safe Sanctuary Policy as of 04/31/15.

Wesley Covenant Prayer

I am no longer my own, but thine. Put me to what thou wilt, rank me with whom thou wilt. Put me to doing, put me to suffering. Let me be employed for thee or laid aside for thee, exalted for thee or brought low for thee. Let me be full, let me be empty. Let me have all things, let me have nothing.

I freely and heartily yield all things to thy pleasure and disposal. And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, thou art mine, and I am thine. So be it. And the covenant which I have made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.
