Safe Sanctuaries Policy

The General Conference of The United Methodist Church adopted a resolution aimed at reducing the
risk of child sexual abuse in the church. In accordance with The Book of Resolution of the United
Methodist Church –1996, we adopt this policy for the prevention of child abuse in Epworth United
Methodist Church (“Epworth”).

This policy takes effect immediately upon adoption by Epworth’s Administrative Council. This
policy supersedes any policy previously adopted and is considered the full and complete Safe
Sanctuary Policy at Epworth. This policy shall be reviewed annually by Epworth’s Safe Sanctuary
Committee and any changes presented to Epworth’s Administrative Council.
