The policy for management of this facility is intended to ensure orderly access:
Members of the church
Regular Attenders (those individuals we have a record of attending at least 2 times per month for at least 6 months).
Fees may be assessed in certain instances to cover full or partial expenses of an event.
When you use the building, two simple rules of thumb should guide you:
This building is a gift of God, and it represents the sacrificial giving of a lot of people. Use it joyfully for His glory, but do your best to take care of it.
When you are done using the building, remember that others will follow who also want to use it to minister to people. Leave it in great shape, like you would want to find it if you were coming in to do a ministry!
This policy does not cover weddings. If you would like to have a wedding at South Side, please visit our Weddings page or click here: www.southsidesbc.org/weddings.
