Building Use Form
The Church Building Use Policy at Grace Christian Fellowship reflects our values and is in line with our mission statement. The sole criterion for building use is that GCF or one of its ministries sponsor the event. Examples might include a baby or wedding shower sponsored by a home group, a youth group sponsored event, a birthday party sponsored by a home group, etc. Requests not sponsored by GCF or any of its ministries may be denied subject to elder’s board discretion.
Requests must be made at least two weeks prior to the event and are subject to review and approval by staff. Unanticipated events. (funerals, etc.) may be fast-tracked through any reviews or approvals necessary. If you would like to use one of the church buildings, please fill out the following application.
Notes: Occupancy limit of the sanctuary is 270 and the Sunday school hall is 150 (w/o tables). Do not plan an event for a room above its occupancy limit.
No decorations are allowed on the walls or from the ceiling or light fixtures. Decorations are allowed only on the tables or chairs.
Please leave the building clean and ready for the next event. This is a checklist of things that must be done:
Cleanup must be done immediately after the event before the building has been closed.
Dust mop floor around couches. Spot wet mop where spills have occurred.
Empty all garbages (sanctuary, living room, nursery, kitchen, and Sunday school room)
Vacuum and clean nursery (if applicable)
Wipe off tables
Put away tables, chairs and couches back to where you found them
Turn off lights
Make sure front doors of church are secure and locked
Make sure all other doors and windows are closed and locked
Make sure alarm is armed
