Facilities & Weddings

Facilities

The Board of Trustees has developed this Facility Policy to provide guidelines for our stewardship of the facilities which God has provided to us for ministering to our congregation and the community at large.

The church, buildings and equipment are tools which are used by the people of God for the work of the Church. They exist for people, for the ministry and witness of the church and the welfare of the community we serve. Our goal is to make the best possible use of all of our facilities. This means that the entire facility is available for use by the entire church; no one group has total control or permanent ownership of a specific room.

We are accepting applications for small groups to begin gathering outdoors on Mandarin UMC’s campus starting on September 17th, 2020! To request space (one time or regularly scheduled event) a Facilities Request Form shall be submitted to the church office at least three (3) weeks and no more than 365 days in advance of the activity.

Please use this form to request an outdoor space.

Key Policy

MUMC considers the safety of our children, youth and families to be one of our highest priorities.  With that goal in mind, we are upgrading the lock and keying system used throughout our campus. This work will begin in November 2021 and new keys will be issued to the staff as the locks are changed.  In general, lay members of the congregation will not be issued new keys. Future access to campus facilities will be coordinated through the staff and the sextons. If required, keys may be issued on a temporary basis to lay members when circumstances warrant. Please view our full Key Policy here.
