Heartland Church (“Heartland”) maintains its facility for usage by Heartland members, attenders, and non-attenders in the community. The following policy is standard for all persons or groups and is expected to be followed at all times. Due to maintenance and upkeep needs, a reasonable fee is requested upon execution of the rental agreement. Any and all groups or functions must be approved by the appropriate committee of Heartland which is ultimately answers to the Governing Board of Heartland.
We believe that our buildings and facilities are a gift from God and we desire they be used to glorify Him. We also believe He has made us custodians and stewards of these resources. The user’s activities must be consistent with the mission statement of the church. Activities and conduct must be consistent with those reasonably expected in a church facility.
When approving a request to use our facilities, we take into consideration the existing commitments to other groups, both inside and outside the church. The church is not available on Sunday mornings. This is how we prioritize the use of our facility:
Heartland program and ministry events (these are regularly scheduled and church related)
Heartland members and regular attenders (6+ months)
Group or individual from within the community (schools, non-profit organizations, etc.)
User Responsibilities and Other Guidelines
Heartland reserves the right to assess damage fees due to injury to our facility by a user(s) as deemed necessary.
No smoking is allowed inside any of Heartland’s facilities, and smoking remnants may not be thrown on the ground outside the building.
After the event the users are expected to place the tables and chairs in the same condition as they were when they arrived.
All children and youth activities are required to have designated responsible adults in attendance as sponsors and chaperones for said activities.
Heartland furnishings located in the auditorium may only be moved upon approval of an authorized representative of Heartland.
