Facility Use

Our church believes in making a different in the community. Historically, the black church has provided a meeting place for religious and social change. By allowing others to use the church’s facilities, churches become the center of community activities.

We seek to serve the needs of their members so they allow them to use the church’s facilities. Our members can enjoy using our facilities for large gatherings such as funeral receptions and weddings. Outside groups can obtain access by completing a facility use application. Members and guests are all governed to the requirements of the church. The church is a holy and sacred place. Therefore, the conduct, behavior, and church neatness should be in effect.

If you are interested in using our facility, you will need to complete a facility use form by coming into the church office. To get a facility use form, click here.
