Children's enthusiastic expressions of faith can help transform the church and everyone in it. To assist children in fully participating in their church communities and in exploring their own ministries, we provide imaginative, innovative resources for those who work with children.
The Episcopal Church is serious in its call to love, shelter, protect, and defend children within its own community and in the world. The General Convention of The Episcopal Church adopted the Safe Church Resolution (B008) in 2003 to “Protect Children and Youth from Abuse.”
The Safeguarding God's Children program was developed to prevent and respond to child sexual abuse in everyday life and ministry. By keeping our children safe we can empower them to grow, receiving and responding to God’s love.
