We are a Safe Sanctuary Compliant Church

Jesus said, “Whoever welcomes [a] child … welcomes me” (Matthew 18:5). Children are our present and our future, our hope, our teachers, our inspiration. They are full participants in the life of the church and in the realm of God.

God calls us to make our churches safe places, protecting children and other vulnerable persons from sexual and ritual abuse. God calls us to create communities of faith where children and adults grow safe and strong. (From The Book of Resolutions of The United Methodist Church – 2000, pp 180-181. Copyright © 2000 by The United Methodist Publishing House. Used by permission).

Thus, in covenant with all United Methodist congregations, Canton First UMC has adopted a Safe Sanctuary Policy (Click Here to View the PDF) for reducing the risk of abuse of children, youth, and vulnerable adults in our church. It is the policy of Canton First United Methodist Church that all employees, volunteers, visitors, members, children, youth, and vulnerable adults be treated with respect, in an environment free from abuse, intimidation, humiliation, or insult. This policy’s purpose is to demonstrate Canton First United Methodist Church’s absolute commitment to the physical safety and spiritual growth of all the children, youth, and adults of the church.

Hands for God Ministry

Rene is retired and widowed and enjoys working with the Hands for God (HFG) Ministry at our church. Renee says it gives her purpose to share what she enjoys doing, and especially to give blankets to a person who may need to know that someone who doesn’t even know their name, cares for them.
