Child and Vulnerable Person Protection Policy

As a community of faith called to live Christ’s love, welcome all people, and joyfully serve God, we believe that we must do all we can to protect the children who worship, learn, and grow here as well as protect the adults who generously share their faithful gifts with the children. It is because of these beliefs that we established the Child Protection Policy for all working with and ministering to the children, youth and vulnerable persons of WGPC.
