Building Use Guidelines

Room and Equipment Reservations

To reserve a room at CPC contact the CPC Office Manager. All reservations are noted on the CPC calendar. Room requests for events that require session approval must be submitted on an "Application to Use Church Facilities" form (online in Word or PDF format or available at the CPC Office). Also refer to the Building Use Guidelines regarding the use of church facilities.

The Office Manager handles the rental of CPC facilities, including administering necessary forms and keys; referring facility requests to session for approval; communications with the renter; charges incurred and collection of fees; and the pre-rental meeting. Our facilities are sometimes used to house visiting groups such as service teams or choirs. These uses are administered similarly through the office.

Media and other classroom equipment reservations are made through the Director of Christian Education.

Building & Grounds Requests

The Building & Grounds Manager is responsible for setting up tables, chairs and the stage; opening/closing the Fellowship Hall wall; ensuring each room has the correct tables, chairs and set-up; small repairs to the building; and leaf and snow removal from walks and grounds.

Requests for special room set-ups must be submitted on the Room Set-Up Form (online in Word or PDF format, or available at the CPC Office), preferably at least three days in advance. These requests are processed through the CPC Office.

Labyrinth and Outdoor Meditation Center

Signs point the way from the rear parking area to the labyrinth and Outdoor Meditation Center. A labyrinth is a circular path leading predictably to the center; walking it is a way of quieting the mind and opening oneself to God. Experience the power of a walking prayer in this wooded area that is a respite from our busy lives. There is no right or wrong way to walk it: each time you walk, your experience will be different. This area can also be used for nature walks, classes and services.

For more information about the labyrinth, or ideas about its use, contact Jeanne Bolick.

Columbarium

Cary Presbyterian Church is privileged to have a Columbarium for interring the cremated remains of members of our extended church family. The Columbarium, with its Memorial Garden, provides a permanent place for family members to visit and remember their loved ones in a comfortable church setting. The Columbarium serves as a reminder of the mysteries of life and death and resurrection, and provides a quiet place for meditation.

Each niche in the Columbarium is designed to hold the cremated remains of one or two loved ones. Niches in the Columbarium are available for purchase, for immediate use or reserved for future use, at the very reasonable price of $2,000 (subject to change), which includes inscribing the name(s) and birth and death dates of the deceased on the granite niche cover. If circumstances change and a niche in the Columbarium is no longer needed, a niche may be repurchased by the Cary Presbyterian Church, at its option, for a refund of the purchase price less a $100 administrative fee and any expenses incurred. Once an inscription has been made on the granite niche cover, no refund can be made.

If you are interested in learning more about the Columbarium please contact one of the Columbarium Committee members.

Library

CPC’s library, located next to the sanctuary in Room 203, provides resources for teachers and leaders of the church, as well as materials for individual study. There are books, videos and audio tapes, as well as a children’s collection. The library is open whenever the church is open. Books are loaned on a self-checkout system. Our library is a work in progress and we are continually accepting and adding new books and materials to the collection.

For more information, see the Library webpage.

Kitchen

The Kitchen Team ensures that supplies are stocked as needed, including coffee and paper goods (most are ordered through the church office); looks at upcoming events calendar to ensure that correct supplies are available; cleans the kitchen or ensures that it is kept clean (especially discarding food items from the refrigerators as necessary); and orders cleaning materials from Ecolab as needed.

For more information, contact the Kitchen Team lead.

Resource Center

The Resource Center is in Room 221, located in the upper floor of the Education Building. It contains craft supplies and supplemental resources to enhance the teaching of Bible lessons. It also stores the media equipment, to be used only by church school teachers and other church-related groups. The media equipment requires advanced reservation, made through the Coordinator of Christian Education or the Church Office Manager.

For more information contact the Coordinator of Christian Education.

Buses

CPC has two fifteen-passenger buses. These buses are used for the After School transportation; Sunday morning transportation (to/from Glenaire and Woodland Terrace); youth group events; and other church activities (on an “as available” basis). Drivers must be 25 years of age and trained by a member of the Bus Team. Youth riders must have a signed liability waiver on file at CPC. After each use, buses should be returned with a full tank of gas and in clean condition (see guidelines located inside the bus). Seatbelt laws are to be followed at all times. Reservations can be made by contacting the Associate Pastor.

For more information, contact the Bus Team lead.

Parking

Parking should be limited to the paved parking areas. Handicapped parking spaces are designated near each entrance, and additional special needs parking spots in the front of the church are available for worship services and special events.

For more information about the new parking lot, click here.

For more information, contact the Buildings & Grounds Ministry lead.

Accessibility

Handicapped parking spaces are located near each entrance. Ramps and elevators enable access to all levels of church buildings.

For more information, contact the Buildings & Grounds Ministry lead.

Building and Grounds Care

The Building and Grounds team supervise the maintenance and repairs to church buildings and grounds. They offer opportunities for all to help by organizing several Saturday church workdays throughout the year to enhance the work already done by contractors. Workday volunteers plant flower beds, prune shrubbery, rake leaves and clean up natural areas. Some inside cleaning and organizing work is also arranged.

For more information, contact the Buildings & Grounds Ministry lead.
