1. Payment

All user fees must be paid in full in the church office one week prior to the scheduled event.

2. Room Condition and Damage

Facilities are expected to be left in the condition in which they were found. An extra clean-up fee will be charged if necessary. The user is responsible for replacement or repair of damages caused by any user in its group. Furnishings may not be moved unless moved under the supervision of the paid staff of the church. No items of any type may be attached to the walls. Chalkboards and easels may be used if cleared with staff prior to the meeting. Keys will not be given to outside organizations. First United Methodist Church does not provide video or audio equipment to outside groups. Sound equipment may be used for an additional rental fee of $20 (see fee schedule). A sound booth operator is mandatory in the sanctuary. (See fee schedule for charges.)

3. Storage

Outside groups are not allowed to store items inside the church between meetings. Exceptions to this rule may be made by the church office. The church will assume no responsibility for security of items stored in the church by outside groups.
