IMPORTANT - PROPER USAGE OF CHS FACILITY
God has been good in providing CHS for our use. However, we have received feedback from our CHS host that we have been errant in observing proper usage of their facility. Specifically, please strictly observe the following:
1. No food or drinks are to be consumed in the Sanctuary and classrooms at all times, with exception of water for Pastors and teachers when they are preaching or teaching.
2. Please do not step or rest your shoes on the kneeler cushions. They are used for kneeling and are to be kept clean.
3. Please ensure all tables and chairs are cleaned after usage (food crumbs and spillages wiped off) and returned to their original positions.
4. There are bins placed in the toilets for proper disposal of used hand tissues. Please use them and do not choke the toilets with hand tissues.
5. Please return the pew bibles and prayer books to their original positions after use and take the GBC bulletin with you when you leave.
Thank you for your kind co-operation in keeping CHS neat and tidy, thus showing gratitude for our host’s hospitality and respect for God’s House of Worship.
