Facilities Use Rules
It is our intent that the church facilities be used primarily for activities consistent with our
The following rules and procedures must be observed by those using church facilities.
Pastor or Trustee approval is required for any of the following:
Following each use:
During Each use:
If there is more than one activity using the same building or other Church common area, be a good neighbor and respect other users.
Grace does not have full-time janitorial services – this is especially an issue when it comes to garbage. This means we need each group to clean up after themselves.
All youth activities must have adequate adult supervision. There must be at least 1 adult for every 8 youths. Youths must limit themselves to their assigned areas only. Wandering through the halls, other rooms, and moving into other areas of the building is strictly prohibited. Supervising adults are encouraged to periodically remind youths of these restrictions.
Emergency Scheduling Conflicts
The church reserves the right to pre-empt any facility use for its own in cases of emergencies, such as funerals. Notice will be provided as early as possible.
Parking in the church parking lot or designated handicapped parking spaces is available only during the period of time that a group has contracted to use the facility. Parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis and excludes certain spots that may be specifically reserved at all times for staff of the church. Any damage to vehicles is at the owner’s expense; the church is not responsible for theft or damage to personal property.
Our church works to maintain a safe and secure environment within the facility. However, no systems are foolproof. We ask that all users pay close attention to personal property and valuables, not leaving them unattended. The church is not responsible for theft or damage to personal property.
All decorations require prior approval of the Board of Trustees or their designee. Decorations may only be attached to wooden trim, and wooden doors with masking tape only. No decorating is permitted in the hallways. All such decorations must be removed immediately and completely following the event.
