Policies and Forms

First Parish in Bedford takes safety for our children and youth seriously.  In addition to our Safe Congregation program, we screen all who work with children and youth with a Criminal Offender inquiry (CORI).  We ask that parents allow all children who are registered for our religious education program to be photographed for use in our outreach materials (as a matter of practice, children’s full names are never shared publicly through media).

Please refer to documents noted below for materials pertaining to our children and youth, their safety and our practices.  If you have questions or concerns, please contact Lisa Maria Andreoli Steinberg, Director of Faith Development for Children.
