Keeping Kids Safe

Safe Sanctuary

          Salem has put into place measures to keep children safe while here.  We call these measures, Safe Sanctuaries. Here are a few of the procedures we follow to keep children safe while in our building.

  •  Salem has a "two adult rule," two unrelated adults shall be present  during the church activity.
  •  Salem has "roamers" who travel, unscheduled, from room to room during the Sunday school hours.
  •   At Salem an individual may not supervise a church activity or ministry involving children unless the individual is at least five years older than the oldest child participating in the church activity or ministry.
  •  Each room serving as the location of a church activity or ministry has a window in the door, and the door to the room  remains unlocked, during the church activity or ministry.
  •  Salem has sign in and sign out procedures for each class and the nursery. Parents of children in the nursery, receive pagers should communication with the parents be needed.
  •  Volunteers and staff working with children obtain clearances per Pennsylvania law.

If you have questions about our Safe Sanctuaries' policies, contact Tracey Michelsen at or 938-1928.
