At OBPC we cherish our children so we go above and beyond to abide by all state, PCUSA, and church policies regarding the care of our children. Our Session has implemented our Keeping Kids Safe program to ensure that our church is a welcoming and safe place for all children. This program has many parts including our Policy for the Protection of Children and Youth and volunteer training. The program includes required Keeping Kids Safe training and mandatory background checks for all volunteers. Another important part of the program is the education of all members of our congregation, adults and children, about our policies and procedures regarding what we can all do to help keep kids safe while they are at church functions. Annually, conversations are held with the children and a reminder presentation is given for adults.
