Safe Church Policies and Documents
With Mennonite Church USA, Central District Conference and consistent with our commitments in the Privileges of the Child, Assembly Mennonite Church covenants to be a safe place for all of God’s people.
Given the preciousness of our children and youth and their potential vulnerability to abuse, we covenant for their safety and full participation in our community. In times of injury and broken relationships we desire to center the voices of survivors. The guidelines and policies regarding those who have been credibly accused of sexual misconduct recognize the possibility of change and renewal for those who take responsibility for the past pain and injury they have caused.
