First Broad Street is fully committed to providing the safest environment possible for all people, especially children and teenagers. We have established a policy and procedure guideline called "Safe Sanctuaries" which requires a background check and training for all volunteers and staff working with persons under 18 years of age. Our background checks and training is conducted through our partner, Safe Gatherings.

All First Broad Street UMC volunteers working with children and students age birth-18 are asked to complete online abuse prevention training through Safe Gatherings. Please click the logo above and create an account with Safe Gatherings and follow the onscreen prompts to complete the training. For questions, please contact Rev. Misti McCreary at or Nathan Flora at
