Building / Room Use & Checklist

Facilities Stewardship

Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much… Luke 16:10

All groups will perform their own general clean up and return of furnishings to their original positions. When you are finished, please leave the room better than it was found. Do your part in the care and cleanup of the facilities helps ensure we’ll be able to reach others who are not yet here (pay-it-forward).

In light of the many activities held in our building, and because the primary purpose of the building is to gather to worship God, it is important that we manage the use of the building well, with care to preserve a welcoming environment to all of us, especially to our guests.

Please accept the guidelines in that spirit.
