Code of Conduct

Youth Expectations

-Be punctual; late arrivals are often disruptive. Try to arrive a few minutes early if possible.

-During large group presentations, please raise your hand if you have a question or comment

-Once you enter the Family Center or Youth Building, you are expected to stay for the duration of the session. The youth ministry staff and volunteers assume responsibility for your safety. We take this task very seriously. If you must leave a session early, please provide us a note from a parent or guardian explaining the circumstance.

-Be cooperative and actively participate

-Please refrain from using your cell phone

-Be respectful when someone else is speaking or “has the floor”

-No public displays of affection

Typical Disciplinary Course of Action*

-If a youth is disruptive, a member of the youth ministry staff and another adult will pull the student aside for a private discussion and a warning.

-If the disruptive behavior continues, Deacon John Harrison, a member of the youth ministry staff and another adult will pull the student aside to explain expectations further.

-If the negative behavior continues, we will call your parent/guardian to discuss the matter.

*Depending on the severity of the rule breaking, appropriate action will be taken, which could result in a warning, a meeting with Deacon John, or a phone call home to parents.
