Safe Sanctuary

Our church is a safe haven for all those that enter.  A Safe Sanctuary Policy has been implemented to ensure each one is nurtured and cared for in a protective environment.

Dove Nest Seminar

Dove’s Nest is a group that seeks to empower faith communities to keep children safe.  On September 18, 2016, Dove’s Nest came to North Goshen Mennonite Church to raise awareness about safe sanctuary issues.  In addition, a presentation was given regarding the Circle of Grace curriculum that helps to educate children and youth about the value of positive relationships with God and others.
