Building Usage Guidelines

Thank you for your interest in using Athens Christian Church building.  Please read the guidelines and submit your request to use the building. Church events take precedence, and all other events are on a first come, first serve basis. You will be contacted the following Monday to let you know the request has been approved or denied. 

For now, all events will require face masks when indoors and not able to be 6 feet apart.


Each event must be cleared with the church office before planning or promoting. The calendar must be clear of scheduled events around that date and time to avoid possible conflicts. The event must then be noted on the church calendar indicating exact times and exact area(s) of building to be used. 

Any deviation from original plan should be cleared with the church office before proceeding with change in plans. 

A $25 fee for showers, private parties, meetings, etc.

Community groups requesting for dinners, meetings, testing, or practices please contact the church office for pricing. (217) 636-8463

Only the areas of the building reserved may be used. It is the responsibility of the person sponsoring the event to be sure that all children and other guests remain in the designated areas, including the restrooms and entrances closest to the reserved area. 

No smoking or alcohol will be allowed in the church building or on the church grounds at any time. 

Please provide your own supplies; i.e., paper products, coffee, tea, etc. 

All areas of the building used must be left clean and ready to be used by the next group scheduled to use that area. 

Set up and tear down of any tables and chairs are the responsibility of the group using the designated area. The area must be returned to its original set-up before leaving. 

Before leaving, all lights should be turned off. 

If any of the guidelines above are not followed an additional fee may be added to your event or you may not be allowed to use the building in the future.
