Code of Interpersonal Ethics

and Online Conduct

for the Grace Church Family



Believing that God has called us to be a church family together, we commit ourselves to the following Code of Ethics to guide us in our interactions and communications with one another and in our usage of social media and the internet:


1.     Whether verbally or through digital communications (e.g. social media) we will speak and deal with people in an open, honest, and respectful manner.  We will not engage in harassment, use of abusive words or actions, or coercion of others.  We will respect the confidentiality of information and privacy of others.

2.     We will serve one another with a mutual understanding and respect for our cultural, ethnic, and personal backgrounds.

3.     We will develop trusting relationships with the persons we serve and therefore discourage any behaviors that might cause mistrust in others.

4.     We will maintain integrity and purity in our relationships with others.  We will, therefore, avoid any impropriety or even the appearance of impropriety with others.

5.     When a child or adult experiences distress, we will offer appropriate comfort and assistance.  Where applicable, we will help others find appropriate assistance from services available in the broader community.

6.     We will endeavor to protect each other from abuse and will take necessary steps to report suspected abuse to proper authorities.

7.     We will not knowingly access internet sites which contain obscene, profane, pornographic or sexually explicit material or which, demeans, threatens or intimidates any person or suggests violence, hatred or discrimination toward other people.


May this code serve as a guide to help us to care for one another in mutual respect.


This code of conduct was approved by the Executive Council, May 15, 2013
