Facility Utilization

PROCEDURE for USE OF THE CHURCH FACILITIES

A. In a conscious effort to be faithful in its stewardship, this church will seek to make the maximum appropriate use of its facilities.
B. It shall be the intention of the church to make its facilities available to nonprofit community service groups for programs and projects not involving admission charges or fundraising.  We will ask that all such groups using our facilities make a donation to help us cover our expenses related to heating and cooling, cleaning, and wear and tear.  All such groups shall apply for use of our facilities through the church office.  A copy of our form “Application/Contract For Use Of Church Facilities” must be filled out.
C. Obtain from the church office the Application form, and copies of Procedure and Policies forms.
D. Read these forms thoroughly to insure that your usage will comply with all policies.
E. Complete the Application/Contract form and return it to the church office. Be sure that your request has allowed for two months for approval.
F. Do not print any materials, send any letters, or publicize the meeting location in any way prior to approval.
C. All use requests will be forwarded to the Property Committee for review and then will be sent to the Session for approval.  Please make all requests at least two months in advance of the date of use to allow for review and approval.
