FAQ

  • I’M NOT A CHRISTIAN, CAN I STILL RENT YOUR FACILITY FOR A GATHERING OR BIRTHDAY PARTY?
    • ABSOLUTELY!!
  • WE’RE LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO HOLD A RELIGIOUS SERVICE, ARE WE ALLOWED?
    • WE DON’T BELIEVE IN RELIGIOUS DISCRIMINATION, HOWEVER WE ASK THAT YOU READ OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH BEFORE BOOKING. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT WE ARE AN EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN ORGANIZATION.
  • WE ACCIDENTALLY BROKE SOMETHING DURING OUR RENTAL, WHAT DO WE DO NOW?
    • PLEASE CONTACT ALYCIA AND LET HER KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. ONCE WE HAVE ASSESSED THE DAMAGE AND FIGURED OUT THE COST OF REPLACEMENT/REPAIRS, WE WILL SEND YOU A BILL.
  • WE DIDN’T FEEL LIKE CLEANING UP AFTER OURSELVES, SO WE JUST LEFT EVERYTHING AS WE HAD IT.
    • UNFORTUNATELY, YOU ARE NOW ON A ‘NO RENT’ LIST. YOU WILL ALSO BE SENT A BILL FOR THE COST OF OUR CLEANING STAFF.
  • OUR RENTAL IS TOMORROW BUT THERE IS A HUGE SNOWSTORM COMING AND WE’VE ALREADY PAID FOR THE RENTAL, DO WE LOSE THE PAYMENT?
    • ABSOLUTELY NOT!! WHILE THE PAYMENT IS NON-REFUNDABLE, IT IS TRANSFERABLE! SO WE WILL RESCHEDULE YOUR RENTAL AND PRAY THE WEATHER COOPERATES FOR THE NEXT TIME!
  • WHY DO WEEKEND DATES IN DECEMBER BOOK UP SO FAST? I CAN NEVER GET THE DATE THAT I NEED!
    • WE HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE BOOKED THESE WEEKENDS YEARS AGO AND UNTIL THEY DECIDE THAT THEY NO LONGER WHAT THAT WEEKEND DAY, WE HAVE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THOSE AGREEMENTS.
  • WHY DON’T YOU DO 1/2 DAY OR HOURLY RENTALS?
    • IN SHORT, THE STAFF HERE SIMPLY DON’T WANT THE HASSLE OF COMING IN & OUT ON DAYS OFF AND KICKING PEOPLE OUT WHEN THEIR RENTAL HAS EXPIRED. OUR STAFF HERE WORK EXTREMELY HARD DURING THE WEEK, SO TO HAVE SOMEONE HAVE TO DEDICATE TIME TO US OVER THE WEEKENDS JUST TO OPEN DOORS & TELL PEOPLE TO LEAVE ISN’T FAIR.
  • IS THERE STAFF ON SITE FOR OUR RENTALS JUST IN CASE WE HAVE QUESTIONS, OR IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG?
    • THERE IS NO STAFF ON SITE DURING YOUR RENTAL. WE ASK THAT YOU DO A WALK-THROUGH WITH ALYCIA IF YOU’VE NEVER RENTED OUR FACILITY BEFORE. SHE WILL SHOW YOU WHERE EVERYTHING IS AND WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE. THERE IS ALSO A BINDER LOCATED ON THE CANTEEN COUNTER THAT HAS ALL OF THE INFORMATION IN IT THAT SHE MENTIONED DURING THE WALK-THROUGH. SHE IS ALSO A TEXT AWAY AND HER NUMBER IS IN THE BINDER.
  •  WHAT DO WE HAVE TO DO SO MUCH CLEANING? DON’T YOU HAVE STAFF FOR THAT?
    • WE SIMPLY ASK THAT YOU TAKE EVERYTHING OUT OF THE SPACE THAT YOU BRING INTO THE SPACE AND LEAVE THE PLACE LIKE YOU FOUND IT. IT’S JUST COMMON COURTESY. WE WILL NOT ASK YOU TO SCRUB DOWN WASHROOMS OR MOP THE FLOOR (UNLESS A MESS HAS BEEN MADE…THEN WE ASK THAT YOU CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR GROUP).
  • WHAT TYPES OF EVENTS CAN WE HAVE AT THE BUNKER?
    • BIRTHDAY PARTIES, STAFF BANQUETS, FAMILY GATHERINGS, CONCERTS
  • HOW DO WE GET INTO THE BUILDING IF THERE ARE NO STAFF ON SITE?
