St. Mark’s Lutheran Church of Olathe, KS, is dedicated to the glory of God and joyful worship. In keeping with its orderly use as a house of worship, the Church Council has established a Church Use Policy. The church may be used by members, nonprofit organizations and also by Lutheran-affiliated organizations. The church facilities may not be used for business purposes. Ceremonies of lodges or other such organizations shall not be permitted in the church building or on the church premises. St. Mark’s may terminate any organization’s use of the premises at any time.
Funerals will be arranged through the Pastor and the funeral home. If the deceased is a member of the Masonic order, the Masonic ritual services cannot be held at the church. Member families have the use of the sanctuary, the church organist, the kitchen, and the food teams. Several food menu options are available, if desired. Please consult the WINGS Event Coordinator for the menu choices and prices.
WEDDINGS AND OTHER EVENT GUIDELINES
A member may use the church facilities for an organization of which he/she is a member, if the meetings do not conflict with the programs of the church. The Church Use Application must be submitted along with the Facilities Use Agreement to the church secretary for approval. It is advised to list a couple of date options for Council to accommodate your request in a timely manner. You can view our calendar as well in making your request.
Depending upon the size of the organization and its frequency of use, a cleaning charge may be assessed.
Other organizations desiring use of the church facilities will be considered on their individual merit upon formal application to the Church Council. Costs will be assessed commensurate with cleaning care and wear and tear of the building. Nonprofit organizations will be given special considerations.
