posted Apr 30, 2012, 6:20 AM by Carolyn Isch   [ updated Apr 30, 2012, 6:52 AM ]

In an effort to continue to provide a safe atmosphere for the children of St. Paul’s, the church council has approved the implementation of background checks. Effective June 1, 2012, St. Paul’s will require all employees and volunteers, 18 years and older, who work with children to have a background check. Examples of volunteers will include but are not limited to Sunday School teachers, confirmation mentors and nursery volunteers.

The Human Resource committee members are the only group of people to have access to this confidential information. All background checks will be paid for by St. Paul’s church.

Please complete the Volunteer Background Check Form by July 1, 2012 and return in an envelope to the church office. This form is available in the office, downloadable from the  St. Paul's New Background Check Policy page on the web site (Stewardship tab– volunteer page) or with the May Communicator. If you have questions, please refer to the Background Check Policy or contact one of the Human Resource Committee members. The members are Ron Menough, Missy Thompson, Brad Delger and Janelle Savitski. A copy of the Background Check Policy is available in the office.
