Building Use and You

This church year has been lively with many activities for all. People are using classrooms for meetings and larger spaces for parties, potlucks and workshops. Although we have custodial staff to do cleaning, trash removal and room set ups, we have a small staff and we could use everyone’s help to keep our facility comfortable for everyone.

When in the building, please try to leave your space the way you found it, if not better. If you move chairs around in a classroom, please put them back the way you found them. If you use the kitchen, please clean up and wipe down the counters. If you have a cup of coffee in your hand, please return it to the kitchen after coffee hour, instead of leaving it in the hallway or on a table in the office. If there is a big event, please offer to help the custodian with putting tables and chairs away, if you are able.

Please also be mindful of the floors. Dragging furniture can scrape the floor in Parish Hall and create unsightly marks on linoleum floors, as shown above. The image above is from the second floor outside Brunner Chapel. We have dollies for the chairs to roll them in and out of rooms.

And finally, please be aware that we post signs about the building with instructions or if we need to block off areas for safety. Please be mindful of signs if you see them. Thank you!

Together we can keep First U a welcoming place for everyone. Questions or concerns? Please contact Marina, our Business Manager, at
