Registered Sex Offender Policy
FSBC Phoenix recognizes our obligation to take reasonable steps to protect our church community from registered sex offenders. Our policy is as follows:
Under no circumstances shall a registered sex offender be allowed to participate in church activities primarily including minors such as Sunday School, Preschool/Children’s Choir, Vacation Bible School, Children’s Camp, etc.
As an employee, member, or attender of the church community, if you become aware that a member or guest is a registered sex offender, you are obligated to notify a member of the ministerial staff so that reasonable, appropriate steps can be taken.
The Pastor, following the established protocols below, is the ONLY employee or member authorized to sign on behalf of FSBC Phoenix any consent form granting permission to a registered sex offender to worship or participate in other FSBC Phoenix events.
(This policy has been reviewed by legal counsel, July 2010)
