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 17! 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.
