We are called by God to create a safe haven for all children and youth in our care, nurturing, protecting, and empowering them in faith and trust, in mind, body, and spirit. We make this vow each time a child is baptized.
The IPC’s Child and Youth Protection Policy is adopted by IPC’s Session and was most recently amended in May 2023. Our policy applies to those who work or volunteer with children or youth in IPC-sponsored programs or events, and in a broader sense, to all IPC members and staff who interact with youth and children.
All suspected child abuse or neglect must be reported to Pastor, Associate Pastor, Program Director, or Director of Operations.
