We are delighted to share our spaces with members of this congregation & community partners as well. This room request form helps us schedule events and communicate your facility needs. Community groups are encouraged to make a donation to help cover the facility cost. Additional details are available from the Administrative Assistant by emailing

This form initiates the request for a meeting/event space. It communicates equipment needs and, for church events, it communicates details that can be used for church news. Please make your request at least thirty (30) days prior to your event. Please note that there is a cost associated with room usage for public use. After receiving your request form, you will be notified if your request is approved and the cost associated with it.
