Resurrection Evangelical Lutheran Church
Congregation Property Use Resources
Adopted by the Congregation Council, October 2014
Welcome to Resurrection Evangelical Lutheran Church.
Resurrection Evangelical Lutheran Church's primary purpose is to carry on the mission and ministry of the congregation. It is our desire to serve as an outreach to the community and we have a number of longstanding relationships with community organizations for ongoing use. As part of our outreach to the community, when possible, we will attempt to make our facility available to individuals and organizations requesting one-time or short-term use of our church building. Our first priority is to provide space for congregation programs and membership needs. Priority is then given to nonprofit groups that are supported by the church and finally to other nonprofit organizations. Additional requests may be considered on a case-by-case basis.
So that all church members and outside groups can enjoy our facility, we require that you follow this guide and sign and return the Property Use Agreement and Release Form. A copy of the approved form will be returned to you. These forms are to be used for occasional use such as a once only use or for a few hours one day each week or month. As a user of our facility you are required to follow our guidelines and treat our building with respect and care. Use only the rooms assigned and if/when your needs change, fill out a new request form, leave it in the office and we will try to accommodate you. Church activities will always have priority, but an effort will be made to offer other accommodations.
Parking is limited around the church building; please ensure that your attendees are legally parked and not blocking any driveways.
Building use activities fall under the jurisdiction of the Congregational Council. Requests for building use are managed through the church office. No commitment for building use is finalized until the Use Agreement has been approved and executed through the church office and approved by the Congregation Council.
Approval for the use of the grounds and/or facilities of this congregation does not constitute or imply endorsement of a group, its mission, or its beliefs. Groups approved to use congregation facilities are not to advertise the event in such a way as to imply endorsement by the congregation. No activities or advocacy may take place within the congregation, its buildings or grounds that conflict with the practices of this congregation and the ELCA.
