    If you work with children in any way at my church, you have to be fingerprinted and have a background check. Even if everyone knows yourand knows you wouldn't be a threat. All have to do this. New people or old.

    We don’t have “children’s ministry”. We have “family ministry”

    Here in the UK, if you work with children in church or any other organisation, you have to have a police check. I think possibly with old people as well.

    Does that mean your church does not have a nursery?

    Call it what you want - but does your church have any standards for child safety.

    Oh - one other thing - Do you all send your children directly to college and simply skip elementary and High school?

    Interesting info
    BUT

    The purpose of the OP is asking:

    "does your church have any standards for child safety."

    If so - what are the standards

    No, any cars we have for children are automatics.
