We strive to provide a fun and safe environment for all of our ministries to children and youth. In an effort to protect the children and guard them from contact with predators, the state of Pennsylvania has implemented several security checkpoints to be completed by every volunteer.
If you would like to serve in one of our ministries to minors please take a few moments and walk through the simple process to complete your clearances and submit them to the church office.
PA Child Abuse History Certification
This clearance is specifically through the PA Department of Human Services Statewide database and covers any incident of child abuse.
PA State Police Background Check
This clearance is through the State Police database and is a more comprehensive picture of any offenses that have been committed.
Federal FBI Background Clearance
This clearance is through the FBI database and requires fingerprinting to be done at an approved location. People who have been a resident of PA for, at least, the last ten years do not have to get fingerprinted but do need to complete an affidavit stating that they are exempt because of residency history.
Fingerprinting Cost: $23
Affidavit Cost: Free (Excluding Notary Cost)
