If you are interested in using church space, call the church with the dates, times, and nature of your event to check on availability (925-934-3135). The administrator will go over the specifics of your event, such as tables and/or chairs needed, then send you an application/agreement form if the space is available. To reserve space, an agreement must be signed along with payment in advance.
