Property Usage Policy

Property Usage Policy

Grace Fellowship Christian Reformed Church

Pella, Iowa


It is the responsibility of Grace Fellowship to be good stewards of the property God has blessed us with. This includes responsible use of both the church building and the church van.

1. Church building use by a member – If a member or regular attender of Grace Fellowship wants to use the church building for personal use, they must contact the church office to reserve it. They will be required to fill out the Building Usage Request for Member Events form (Attachment A), which also includes the associated costs and clean-up expectations. Types of approved usage are family gatherings, weddings, receptions, funerals, or ministry events.

2. Church building use by a non-member – If a non-member wants to use the church building for personal use, they must contact the church office to reserve it. They will be required to fill out the Building Usage Request for Non-Member Events form (Attachment B), which also includes the associated costs and clean-up expectations.

3. If a member is involved in planning an event for a non-profit, and wants to use the church building, they will need to use the Building Usage Request for Non-Member Events form, but they will only be charged 50% of the building rental fee. This same procedure will be followed for denominational events when Grace Fellowship is not the “host.”

4. Church van usage – If a church member or regular attender of Grace Fellowship wants to use the church van for a non-church activity, they must contact the church office to reserve it. They will be required to fill out the Van Usage Request form (Attachment C) and must follow the directives as stated on the form. Non-members will not be approved to reserve the church van.

5. All requests for building or van usage will be approved by the Deacon of Property or designee.
