As the people of the Methodist Church, we are concerned with the wholeness of each individual within God’s purpose for everyone.  We seek to safeguard all members of the church community of all ages.  It is the responsibility of each one of us to prevent physical, sexual or emotional abuse and neglect of children and young people.

Reflection of the month ... John 1:1-5
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.
