New Hall Reservation policy now in affect (June 2016)
Since the completion of the under-croft in addition to the main parish hall, we have experienced a significant increase in hall reservations this past year. In order to ensure that all reservations can be accommodated there is a new policy going in effect for all reservations going forward.
All requests (Scouts, Non-profit organizations, clubs, individuals) must complete the Parish Hall Usage Agreement and submit it to the Office for confirmation and a reserved time and location.
Please print out the form (or request a form from the Office), fill it out, include all the required documents, and submit it to the Office. Once received the Office will review it and make the reservation as long as time, date, and the hall location is available,
Remember - No reservation will be made until the interested person/group has received an email from the Church Office stating the date, time, hall location that the reservation has been confirmed for.
Living Compass is a web site dedicated to relating our faith with our physical and emotional well-being. It offers a feature called Weekly Words of Wellness, written by Scott Spooner, as a resource for churches wishing to promote spiritual health as a component of overall wellness.
