Strategic Retreat

I may have said this before, but I’m saying it again.  I predict that before long, it will be standard procedure for churches to prohibit any organization or individual not directly a member of the congregation from utilizing church facilities for any purpose.  The legal risks are just mounting.  A few well-placed lawsuits could both deplete whatever savings a congregation might have, as well as draw an ongoing onslaught of negative press.  
I’ll be asking my Church Council to begin consideration of this matter in the near future.  Do your congregations have usage statements in place?  What do they look like?
