IDCC BUILDING MAINTENANCE & USAGE POLICY

Our facility is cooperatively owned and shared by the member Churches of IDCC.  The policy for management of this facility is intended to ensure orderly access by first, the church program of ministries; second, members of the church; third, regular attenders and finally, the broader Indian Christian community when you use the building, two simple rules of thumb should guide you: This building is a gift of God, and it represents the sacrificial giving of a lot of people.  Use it joyfully for His glory, but do your best to take care of it. When you are done using the building, remember that others will follow who also want to use it to minister to people.  Leave it in great shape, like you would want to find it if you were coming in to do a ministry!
