Prevention of Child Abuse


It is important to our church to take every precaution to protect the youth in our care. All adults that are in direct contact with children as staff or volunteers must provide clearances. This is not only our policy but Pennsylvania state law. All clearances must be updated every three years. Clearances for volunteers are free. 


Please follow the links below to obtain your clearances online and return it to the church office at 217 E. High Street Ebensburg, PA. Two types of clearances are required for volunteers: PA Child Abuse Clearance and PA State Background Check. We cannot permit anyone without clearances to volunteer with our youth. If you need assistance in completing this requirement, please stop in and speak with one of the pastors during office hours. Thank you for your cooperation.
