SAFE CHURCH POLICY

Policy Prohibiting Abuse, Exploitation and Harassment

As a community of Christian faith, the Chevy Chase Presbyterian Church is committed to creating and maintaining ministries, programs, facilities and a community in which members, friends, staff and volunteers can worship, learn and work together in an atmosphere free from all forms of discrimination, harassment, exploitation, abuse, or intimidation.  All persons associated with the Chevy Chase Presbyterian Church, (CCPC), should be aware that the church is strongly opposed to Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Harassment and that such behavior is prohibited by church policy.  It is the intention of the church to take action in an attempt to prevent and correct behavior that is contrary to this policy and, if necessary, to discipline those persons who violate this policy.

This policy applies to church members, friends, employees, volunteers, and any others participating in CCPC activities and programs.  Related policies include the CCPC Child Protection Policy and the CCPC Personnel Manual.
