Boise Friends Church Building Use Policies and Procedures

With the primary purpose of Boise Friends Church being to “bring people into reconciliation with God

through Jesus Christ,” the decisions for use of church facilities must be evaluated with this focus in mind.

Because we want to be good stewards of the facilities God has given us, we establish these guidelines

regarding facility usage.

1. Use of the church building which includes the sanctuary, fellowship hall, and classrooms must be approved by the Trustees and is scheduled through the church office.

2. Requests will be considered for functions requested by BFC church members, immediate family of BFC church members, groups from other Friends churches, and local ministries which are supported by the church in principal and purpose.

3. All other requests for building use from organizations that do not share our focused ministry purpose will not be considered.

4. A church key may be left in the lockbox for the person responsible for the event. The key is to be returned to the lockbox at the end of the event.

5. Facilities they are to be left in the manner which they were found.

6. Any breakage or damages should be reported to the custodian or church office. Cost of the repair will be deducted from the deposit.

7. An adult must always be present for any children’s or youth activity.

8. Use of any alcohol, tobacco or drugs is not permitted on the premises.

9. Events which include social dancing will not be held in church facilities.

10. Any function held on Saturday must be completed before 8PM, unless prior arrangements are made with the custodian.
