First Presbyterian Church desires to be a safe place for all children who attend. We believe that proactive steps can be taken to promote the safety of children and the volunteers who work with them. Therefore, we have adopted a prevention program to reduce the possibility of child abuse occurring in this church family (our CAP program).
Everyone, whether paid or volunteer, who works with children and youth, undergoes appropriate screening prior to being given a position. Additionally, we have child check procedures in our nurseries. This takes a little extra time, but allows for safe check-in, check-out, and proper identification of our little ones and their belongings.
