Child Protection Policy

Volunteers who want work with children, youth, and vulnerable adults are asked to read the Incarnation Lutheran Church Child Protection Policy and then submit a Volunteer Background Check Form to the Incarnation Office prior to beginning volunteer work with children and youth.

Read the Child Protection Policy

In November of 2016 the Congregation Council approved an updated version of the Incarnation Lutheran Church Child Protection Policy. The updated version of the policy casts an in-depth vision for how we are working to create an environment that is safe for our children, youth and vulnerable adults.

Included in the policy are: definitions of key words and phrases; brief explanations of roles that volunteers and staff have as related to the policy; resources available for staff and volunteers when suspected abuse takes place; a clearly defined timeline of what to do when an accusation of abuse occurs; and appendices that include all of our guidelines and forms to be filled out. If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Joel Vander Wal.
