Safe Sanctuary Training

Jesus teaches about a peaceable kingdom for all of God’s people (Matthew 5:9Luke 18:15-17).

This peaceable kingdom begins with sanctuary. 

Here at Seabrook United Methodist Church, we are dedicated to providing a safe environment for all.

In order to volunteer with the children and youth of Seabrook United Methodist Church you must have an up-to-date Safe Sanctuaries certification; the training is available on this page.

You will also need to fill out a "consent for background check" form which is available in the church office and as link at the bottom of this page. Please return these forms to Reverend Paula Kirby.  If you have any questions she can be reached at

Our Safe Sanctuaries policy and procedures are not based on a lack of trust in workers, but are intended to protect our preschoolers, children, youth, seniors, volunteers, employees, and church. Careful and confidential documentation is essential.

Thank you for volunteering at Seabrook United Methodist Church!
