Safety at CUMC
At Clemmons United Methodist Church, we take seriously our moral and legal responsibility to provide a safe environment for children and youth, as well as to support those who work with them, as we seek to proclaim our faith and follow the ministry of Jesus Christ in our world. Because we believe that Jesus taught us to care for His children and youth, we commit our church to the practice of safe supervision through a Safe Sanctuary policy, which sets standards for the supervision of the children, youth, and vulnerable adults in our care. Thus, in covenant with all United Methodist congregations, we adopt Safe Sanctuary policies for the prevention of neglect and abuse.
To secure the health and safety of our congregants, staff and visitors, we have three automated external defibrillators (AEDs) located in the following places: the Ministry Center entrance, the Commons area and the Children’s Ministry hallway. Community members are often the first to respond to emergencies. The AED analyzes a heart rhythm and provides its user with step by step vocal instructions. Please watch the training video to learn more about its use of this equipment.
