The term "Facility" shall mean buildings and rooms but will not include parking lots.

The facilities of First Presbyterian Church will be restricted for exclusive use by the Ministries and Individual Members of the church and may be extended to such organizations and ministries that are affiliated with the Church as indicated by being approved for financial support and by sharing common purpose in promoting and building up the Kingdom of God through the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The use of First Presbyterian Church facilities by the ministries of the Church may be approved  by the Executive Minister.

The use of First Presbyterian Church facilities by individual members shall be restricted to Fellowship Halls for weddings and special anniversary receptions.

The use of facilities by affiliated organizations during normal working hours may be approved by the Executive Minister. Use of facilities outside normal hours must be approved by the Management Committee. Charges may be assessed according to current fee schedule.

The use of parking lots at the Church shall be restricted for exclusive use by the ministries of the Church, organizations, and ministries that are affiliated with the Church as indicated in previous paragraphs, and other groups whose use of the parking lots would be consistent with the Church's goal of being a "Good Neighbor," to be approved by the Executive Minister.
