If your reception is on campus and you have to leave the main building. You must make arrangements with the maintenance staff to return to the main building so it will be unlocked. Otherwise, if you leave the building for any period of time, it will be locked and you will not be able to get back in. If your reception is off campus, you will not be able to get back into the Chapel and/or basement.


If you wish to have a reception at Green Acres Baptist Church, you have several options available to you. Please confirm the availability of the room you would prefer with the Scheduling Coordinator. You may decorate the room you will be using as early as 8:00 a.m. on the morning of the reception. There will be NO colored punch served in any church building. Carpet-staining foods that are mustard, ketchup or tomato-based, are NOT allowed.

Only birdseed or bubbles may be used for the “send off” of the bride and groom, and these may be used only outside of the buildings. We are sorry, but the safety of the participants and the facilities require us to prohibit the use of rice, confetti, flower petals, potpourri or any other material.


Due to necessary cleanup, the reception area will need to be cleared by 9:30 p.m.


Please contact the Scheduling Coordinator for any questions or concerns you may have.
