Code of Conduct Agreement.jpg

Hey Parents

It is our calling to reach the needs of students,

By showing them, God cares about them,

To lead them to a personal relationship with Christ

That will strive for Christian maturity, and

To help each student discover God’s will for their own life.


As we continue to grow as a student ministry - we need to have a set of standard to go by.  We will be making some changes to our student ministry on Wednesday nights.   We are asking all parents and student to read the follow and submit the form at the ends. God is moving in our church! AND WE  are excited about all that He is doing.  

It's a pleasure to minister to your student and your family.

                                                                            Mike Baker and the Student Ministry Volunteers

Disciplinary Guidelines EXPLANATION


      Student ministry volunteers have the authority to begin the correctional process.  You are urged to use the correctional techniques listed for Class I offenses.  If the student in question does not respond or is in violation of a Class II offense, the matter goes to the student minister or event disciplinarian (sponsor in the room or home or on a trip).  Class II and III correction techniques are to be used only after prayer, consultation with affected parties and consideration of directly affected sponsors and staff.


      A weapon is defined as any knife more that is 3.5 inches long when closed, a firearm, an open knife or martial arts item, or explosive device.  A student in possession of any of these items at any church meeting or student event or trip is strictly prohibited.  The possession of any weapon at church or a student event may result in an immediate call to 911 and full cooperation with the law enforcement personnel who respond.  While waiting for police response, the sponsor(s) in charge will coordinate a plan with Safety Team and other leaders to best protect the safety of the other students.  Actual confrontation of a student with a gun or explosive device will be left to the proper authorities.


      Parents have not assigned to church leaders the right to physically discipline students.  Therefore, leaders only make physical contact with a student in order to prevent a greater harm, such as during a fight or an attempt by the student to do harm to him/herself or others.


      Church leaders can only be responsible for students that are actually in an area designated for a student activity.  Parents have no way of knowing whether students are where they should be, and consequently, whether adult supervision is being provided.  The policy of our student ministry is to ask all students on church property or on trips to be in the actual area where the announced activity is taking place.  The only options open to students are to be in the designated class or activity, in the immediate presence of parents or to leave the church property.


      When a student is dismissed from an activity or asked to leave church property because of a violation, parents or responsible adults should be notified immediately.  Reasons for the dismissal should be given.
