Calendar Request

To request an event for the church calendar and/or reserve a room in the facility, fill out the section below.

REQUESTS MUST BE SUBMITTED 2 WEEKS IN ADVANCE OF THE EVENT.

There will be a delay in responses while the admin is out of the office until July 9, 2018. If your event requires response before this time, please follow up this form submission with a call to the office at 804-526-0816.

You will receive a notice once approved; please do not publicize prior to confirmation. With a church the size of MPBC there is always something going on – this process helps us keep from “bumping into” one another. Questions? Contact Katherine in the church office by phone at 526-0816 or at Katherine.dohl@mpbclife.com.

Please note if the activity is non-church related, (Birthday Party, Baby/Bridal Shower, Graduation Party, etc.) a fee will be charged to offset facility expense (see Fee Table below).

While we are happy for our facilities to be available to our members and the community, please be reminded that we are not a event venue that simply rents its facilities to be used. We are a church of Jesus Christ and want to honor Him in all we do—even personal events. For these reasons and practical reasons of facility use, there are certain limitations on what kind of events are approved and activities at those events. This includes (but is not limited to) limitations on tobacco and alcohol use, music selection, and dancing. If you have questions about elements of your planned event, please contact the office for more information. For more information, see the MPBC Facility Use Policy.

Cleanup/Setup Information

We do not set up chairs, tables, etc.

If you have indicated specific needs we do try to ensure we have not allocated those resources elsewhere in the church ministry at the time of your event, but you are responsible for setup and take down (return to original state) of the space for your event.

Following your event, ensure trash (especially food trash) has been removed to the dumpster and the room has been reset. If you have questions, please contact the facilities manager.

Key

If you need a key, please arrange with the office to pick it up the week prior to your event by emailing katherine.dohl@mpbclife.com or calling 526-0816. Keys may be picked up anytime the office is open (9 am–noon, 1-4:30 pm, Monday – Thursday), but advance notice is appreciated for all pickups, and required for afternoon pickups, to make sure we have the key and paperwork ready for you.

Fees

As noted at the top of the facility request form, as the activity is non-church related, (Birthday Party, Baby/Bridal Shower, Graduation Party, etc.) a fee will be charged to offset facility expense. The fee for members for any room is $25; the fees for non-members are tiered ($75 for classroom, $125 for chapel, $250 for CAC).

AV/Media

If you have requested AV capabilities, please note that we do not set this up. You will need to coordinate with Tristan Brink (tristan.brink@mpbclife.com) with your needs if you have not set up and run the equipment before.

Setup/Cleanup

As with AV/Media, we do not set up chairs, tables, etc. We did ask your needs to try to ensure we have not allocated those resources elsewhere in the church ministry at the time of your event, but you are responsible for setup and take down (return to original state) of the space for your event. Following your event, ensure trash (especially food trash) has been removed to the dumpster and the room has been reset. If you have questions, please contact the facilities manager (George.Bridges@mpbclife.com).

Other

Also as noted, there are certain limitations on activities at events. This includes (but is not limited to) limitations on tobacco and alcohol use, music selection, and dancing. If you have questions about elements of your planned event, please contact the office for more information.
