How do I place flowers in the sanctuary during worship?

The Church maintains a calendar for sanctuary flowers which is posted on the bulletin board in the hallway of the Fellowship Hall.  If you would like to provide flowers for a specific Sunday, you should check the calendar and then contact Office Manager to make payment for the flowers which are supplied by the Worship Committee.  After the Sunday service, the donor may take the flowers from the sanctuary.


How do I get into the building during the week?

Normal office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays.  At other times, there is a door bell at the double door entrance to the Fellowship Hall.   Pastor Holly is often in during the afternoons and will respond to the doorbell.   If you are responsible for an event being held at the Church, contact the Office Manager to sign out a key for the facility so that you may have access during the week.    


How do I reserve church facilities?

A representative of the organization should contact the Office Manager regarding the reservation of church facilities.  A reservation form is provided and must be completed and signed by the responsible party.  In most cases, use of the facilities must be approved by the Church Session.  Once approved, the required fee, if any, must be submitted.  A few days before the event, the responsible party must sign for a key from the Church Office to gain access to the facility.  There will be instructions for the return of this key.
