First Baptist Church Sayre, Oklahoma
Child Protection Policy

Recently our insurance provider encouraged us to create and implement a Child protection Policy. The purpose of the policy to provide a safe and secure environment for the children who participate in our programs and activities and to protect the children of First Baptist Church of Sayre from incidents of misconduct or inappropriate behavior while also protecting our staff and volunteers (workers) from false accusations.

We brought together a team of leaders who work with children on a regular basis.  We spent time praying, planning and evaluating a template provide by the insurance company as well as policies from churches throughout the nation.  We set the following goals: 
  1. Evaluate our current policy and procedures
  2. Examine a proposed policy template provided by our insurer with a view to our practice and potential practice.
  3. Create a policy from our practice, this information and other appropriate sources that is thorough and doable in our context.
After several hours of meetings and revisions, we arrived at a policy that met our stated goals.  You may access a copy of it through the link below.
