The State of Pennsylvania expects all organizations, including churches, with children in their care to have safety clearances on file for all volunteers. Basic child abuse and criminal record clearances are free and must be renewed every five years. FBI fingerprints are not required, but we will record a copy if you have them available. Please contact Michael Sabal in person or by email, firstname.lastname@example.org, with questions or to submit your results.
