Safe Church Policy: Throughout 2014-15, the Board of Christian Education worked to create a Safe Church Policy. After researching and reviewing the policies and procedures from the United Church of Christ and other congregations and denominations a policy was created using current practices with additions. In December 2015 the policy was approved by the Church Council. First Congregational Church of Bellingham is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for all children, youth and volunteers who participate in ministries and activities sponsored by the church.
