Family Life Center
We believe that the Solon United Methodist Church (SUMC) and Family Life Center (FLC) is God’s house. Therefore it is open to all of God’s children. We invite members and others in the community to use the facility and to feel at home here. The buildings and sights of SUMC and FLC are available to church members, local nonprofit entities, and individuals promoting Christian, cultural, educational, civic or recreational activities. Such use will be permitted if it does not interfere with or disrupt the ministries and programs of SUMC. Organizations and individuals who wish to use SUMC and/or FLC must fill out this reservation form. It shall be the responsibility of the Building Coordinator to determine if the facility is available and whether the application for use meets with the mission and purpose of the facility. Preferred use of the facility is for church programs and events, and then not-for-profit activities and organizations. SUMC may, on a case-by-case basis, allow profit-based activities or programs which are compatible with the mission and ministry of SUMC.
- A fee of $25/hour is charged for the use of all facilities for one-time events, or the Fellowship Hall can be rented for a total charge of $50 per event.
