Facilities Use

Facilities Use Request

*After reading the following overview, please fill out the Grace Facility Request (GFR) that is linked below.

The facilities and equipment of Grace Church are available to covenant members, other Christian ministries, and community services that are determined to align with the core values of Grace. The following guidelines for the rental and subsequent use of said facilities are in no way exhaustive. They serve as a first step, providing the necessary information needed to complete the GFR. After the GFR is submitted, two steps take place:

  1. 1. The availability of the date and time requested is determined.
  2. 2. An employee of Grace Church reaches out to confirm or deny the availability requested and schedule a meeting to discuss details of the event further, if appropriate.

General Overview:

  1. 1. The availability of any Grace Church facilities is subject to worship services and programming previously scheduled. To ensure that there is adequate space for church activities, Grace Church does not approve requests for outside groups any earlier than four months before the requested date. It is recommended that the GFR is submitted no later than three weeks before the event.

2. The following specifies what spaces are available to use, the capacity of each space, and the flat usage fee for up to four hours. The flat usage fee covers utilities, capital expenses, wear and tear, etc.

  1. 3. In addition to the usage fee, all events are required to pay a maintenance fee of $15 per hour, for a minimum of three hours. If A/V is needed, there is a $35 per hour rate (half-hour increments after the first hour). All A/V must be set-up and operated by a Grace Church trained A/V technician.

  1. 4. If the GFR is approved, lessee of the facilities is required to sign a Release of Indemnity Agreement and the Facility Rental and Usage Agreement. Both of these forms are provided at the meeting following the approval of availability.
