UPDATE: The Presbytery of the Pacific's Safe Church Policy was approved at the November Presbytery meeting and the document is now available for use. You may prefer the PDF version, with its convenient links to the vairous sections, for group study; church personnel may want to access the Word version so the needed sections for your purposes can be separated from the individual document. Please use the versions above, as there are modifications from the draft version distributed before the meeting.
