The Safe Congregation Panel (SCP) is a group of 5 church members and an ex-officio staff member, the Director of Lifespan Religious Education. The church members are elected directly by the congregation for 2 year staggered terms. The purpose of this panel is to help foster a safe congregation by promoting and administering the church’s policies regarding how we behave toward each other. These policies include:
Against Sexual Harassment Policy
Disruptive Behavior Policy
There is a Complaint Procedure outlined on the Policies and Procedures page at the church web site which explains how to report a concern or grievance regarding one of these policies. The panel investigates grievances and prescribes appropriate responses.
The panel meets on an “as needed” basis, but at least every 6 months. Deliberations are confidential. The members of the panel welcome questions or feedback from church members about their activities.
