Safe Sanctuaries – Protecting Our Children and Youth!


Aldersgate cares about our children, youth, and the servants who work with them. We will do out very best to provide an environment that is safe for all. We have several resources below that we invite you to read and review.

Among other things, our policy requires that all servants (both paid and unpaid) who work with children and youth will complete an application, pass a background check, and receive regular training and support in these policies but also in things like first-aid and CPR.

Feel free to contact our church office (937-233-8151) if you have questions or concerns about our Safe Sanctuaries procedures.
