How do you use your church building?
Help, I am the only one who has voted!!! The church is in use every day and for much of the day.
The only day that the church is "officially" closed is Mondays. But even then, the preschool still is open and often people come in to do some work.
Our facilities are used by the following:
Addiction Recovery Center
Bible Study Fellowship
I realized that I marked for all of our campuses.
Our location is rented but the other two are owned.
I'm not sure how often the one other campus is used but ours is just on Sunday since we're at the hotel.
But like I said, the home campus is only closed one day a week.
I am amazed at the number of churches in my community who use the building for only a few hours twice a week.
Sun am, pm, and Wed pm bible studies and awana.
The office is open 5 days a week.
No daycare or school.
It's also paid off totally by congregation funds (and the Grace of God).
Started in 2004, moved in 2008. Just completed the 2 story educational building in Nov, also paid off, no loans.
Now working on the parking lot fund and the funds to demolish the old condemned building. No loans. God is good.
Our church has Sunday services and mid-week activitites as a matter of routine. Office is open 4 days a week. Girl Scouts use our facilities twice a month. Various ministries schedule a number of special events at times that don't conflict with Sunday and Wednesday routine activities.
Additionally, with approval as may be applicable, both members and non-members can use our facilities for private events. Weddings, family reunions, blood drives, health screenings, etc.
Even though we are a small rural church, a day doesn't go by without someone doing something, ranging from finding time to clean to inviting the whole community for fellowship.
Edit: Burned our note on a larger santuary this past week. Church was started on this property in 1850.
