Policies:

  • Fee schedule subject to change.
  • Church, Hampden Food Cupboard and member events have priority.
  • No events will be scheduled prior to 2:00pm on Sundays so as not to interfere with Church services and meetings.
  • Multiple dates/times for events may be tentatively scheduled (such as snow dates), but in the event that there is more than one request to rent the space during one of the tentative dates, the person requesting that we hold multiple dates will be asked to either give up the extra date/time so it can be rented to the new requester, or pay for both/all dates to ensure that the space is available to them and the church loses no revenue.
  • Use of the sanctuary (other than for recitals & concerts) will only be allowed with permission and participation of the pastor.
  • All food and food trash must be removed from the property after the event.
  • Weddings for non-members require $100.00 pre-paid deposit, refundable if the church is left clean, orderly, and without damage. Cancellations require 48 hours notice prior to wedding – deposit non-refundable if given less than 48 hours notice.
  • Long-term rental of any space may be considered.
