Safe Congregation Policy

Shalom’s Safe Congregations Committee exists to hear concerns about inappropriate sexual conduct, violence, intimidation, or physical abuse by child-care workers, teachers, or others in the congregation. Please feel free to be in touch with any of them.

During 2016, a team of Shalom members participated in the Safe Church training through the Collins Center of Harrisonburg. Shalom’s Safe Congregation Policy was officially adopted on May 21, 2017, and implementation of the policy is ongoing. A one-page summary of the policy is here, to make it a little easier to get an overview.
