We are a Safe Sanctuaries Church

Children are full participants in the life of our church and in the realm of God.  God calls us to make our churches safe places, protecting children and other vulnerable persons from abuse.  He also calls us to create communities of faith where children and adults grow safe and strong.  The First United Methodist Church of Saline is a Safe Sanctuary church.  This means we have a written policy supporting these goals.  Our Safe Sanctuary Policy spells out appropriate measures to be followed in our Children’s and Youth Programs.  New staff and first-time volunteers are asked to complete a written application, submit to an ICHAT background check, interview with a ministry director, and take a class covering the precepts and procedures of our policy.  

 

TOTS In Training

Transition To Sunday School - TOTS In Training Class for 2's & 3's

For preschoolers age 2-3, we have a TOTS IN TRAINING Sunday School class with age appropriate stories, activities and fun!   This is a great place for kids to grow accustomed to going to Sunday School in a nurturing environment.  3 Year olds attend class for the whole hour, while 2 Year Olds are brought in from the nursery for the bible story time.  As toddlers are ready, teachers encourage them to stay for longer periods of time.
