Garden Park Christian Church Basic Building Use Policy
Garden Park Christian Church desires to use the facilities God has entrusted to us to honor and glorify Him. It is important that we are good stewards of the physical and financial resources that God has entrusted to us. With that in mind, the fee schedule that follows is established to cover the costs of hosting events without placing an undue financial burden on our church family. The fees are also charged in order to affirm our expectations that those who are granted the privilege of using the facility will do so with great care. The Basic Building Use Policy is in effect as of 5.27.2011.
Every person or entity desiring to use the Garden Park Christian Church facility, in whole or in part, must read and sign an agreement provided by Garden Park. The agreement will clearly state regulations and expectations for general building use, specific guidelines for the type of event involved, and a non-negotiable fee schedule. A security deposit, refundable upon satisfactory completion of the close-out list, will be collected at the time the agreement is signed.
