Using the Church

USING THE CHURCH

There are many rooms available at the church for life groups, meetings, Bible studies, family gatherings, etc. but the church building is also a very busy place. Please call the church office (507-283-8600) to reserve a space and do not assume that it is available. Also, just a reminder that kitchen items, tables, chairs, etc. are not to be removed from the building without prior approval. Please also ask permission before using items that are behind locked doors.
