Property Ministry

Save the date & join the fun - 
2019 property workdays 
April 13,  June 8,  September 7, November 9;  8am-12 noon

Property Ministry tries to reflect CUCC’s commitment to live our faith in action by … Caring for others, Caring for the earth, and Caring for CUCC.

We lead the congregation in coordinating volunteers and contractors so that CUCC might be good stewards of our property. Let’s all work together by:
  • Respecting CUCC buildings and grounds – it is OUR church home.
  • Keeping a positive attitude and having fun as we work TOGETHER to reach our goals.
In order to care for the earth and one another, we ask everyone (members, guests, and renters) to:

1.  Recycle all recyclables in the provided containers.
2.  Unlock the doors, rather than propping them open.  (Ask the Office Manager for instruction; the unlocking process is not intuitively obvious.)
3.  Reset the thermostat to the program, turn off the lights, and lock the doors before leaving every time.
4.  Do not use any styrofoam products at CUCC.
5.  Honor the nut-free zone policy.
6.  Keep CUCC's buildings smoke-free.
7.  Reserve the handicapped parking spaces for those who really need them.

Notice something that needs repair or seems unsafe?  Bring it to the attention of the Property Ministry chair or a member of that ministry.

Requesting a room at CUCC

1.  Check the Office Calendar to see if the space is available.
2.  Call the church office to reserve the space and get information about room capacity, available equipment, etc.  919-809-8850, (9 AM - noon, Tuesday through Friday)
3.  Agree to abide by the seven rules of care above.

Outside groups are asked to help defray our costs by paying the following fees:
  • Bradow Room: $35/unit
  • Hoffmann Room: $40/unit
  • Vaughan Wing: $50/unit
  • Pilgrim House: $35/unit
  • Use of the kitchen is included for coffee/drink preparation only.
  • One unit = use of space for a morning (8AM- Noon), an afternoon (1-5PM), or an evening beginning at 6 PM. Full day use is charged at two units.
  • Wedding for non-member of CUCC: $400 (includes use of sanctuary for rehearsal and ceremony as well as rooms for dressing.)
  • Other use of sanctuary: $60/hour
  • Full use of kitchen for meal preparation and serving in the Vaughan Wing: $130. Sorry, no frying or broiling is allowed on site.
  • If a group or individual who wishes to rent space in the church on a recurring basis cannot afford the rental rate, they can contact the chair of the property ministry to discuss a lower rate.  The utility rate, which pays for utilities and janitorial services as well as repair/replacement of furnishings, is one-half the rental rate.  This consideration will only be given for non-profit groups whose purposes are in keeping with the overall mission of the church and who cannot pay the standard rental rate.
  • A church key security deposit of $100.00 is charged to non-members using the buildings. The deposit will be returned when the church key is returned. The key can be picked up two days in advance of the event.
