Church Use Policy
It is the desire of Atonement to allow our Church to be used by community organizations and for the good of the community.
Certain rooms and areas of the Church are not available for outside usage except under unique
The Sanctuary is the place in the church set aside for worship by the congregation and community. Obviously, it has other possible uses, notably for musical concerts and presentations. As Church use often cannot be predicted or scheduled far in advance (funerals, weddings, special worship events, times for meditation and prayer), reservations for the Sanctuary typically are not received.
The Narthex, although a wonderful room for gatherings, musical events, receptions and the like, is not available for use because it is the entrance and a primary room for daily Church use.
The lower floor of the Church is handicapped-accessible and available for approved public use. There is a beautiful, large fellowship hall with available tables and chairs, a sound system, and an adjacent kitchen and rest rooms.
Additionally, there is a smaller meeting room by the rest rooms which can accommodate meetings, seminars and other gatherings.
The fellowship hall, kitchen, rest rooms and showers are available for retreat usage for groups. Groups coming for retreat must provide their own sleeping bags and pillows. The kitchen may be reserved for meal preparation. Showers are available for retreats, but no linens or towels are provided.
The Church has laundry facilities for church laundry purposes and is not available for outside groups or persons.
If you use the kitchen, the Church Kitchen Policy will be incorporated into the User Agreement
AFTER A CHURCH GROUP USES THE FELLOWSHIP HALL, CERTAIN RESPONSIBILITIES ARE NECESSARY TO READY THE AREA FOR THE NEXT GROUP USING THE FACILITIES. THIS IS ESPECIALLY NECESSARY FOLLOWING SUNDAY EVENTS SINCE WE RENT THE ROOM ON MONDAY AND OUR JANITOR DOES NOT COME IN TO CLEAN ON MONDAY.
