We require all volunteers and staff that work with our Nursery/Toddler, Children and Youth Ministries or volunteers at certain events where contact with our children may occur, to submit copies of a current Child Abuse History Clearance and a PA State Police Criminal Background Check. As of July 25, 2015, background checks for volunteers are now FREE. Visit the two web sites below to complete these clearances. Please email or provide a printed copy of the final results to the church office to be kept on file. Clearances are valid for five years. (NOTE: If you already have background checks from your employer or other volunteer organizations, we can accept a copy of those to keep on file provided they are from within the last five years). For more information, you can visit keepkidssafe.pa.gov or contact the church office.
If you are unsure if you need a background check, please contact Sue Comp at the church office (834-4641 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
