Sandhills Community Church has an auditorium that seats up to 500 people. In addition, our lobby and cafe areas can accommodate a reception for the family (up to 200 people) following the funeral/ memorial service.
Guests are responsible for providing all food and beverages and for ensuring that the room is cleaned up following the reception.
A member of the Sandhills pastoral staff will be available to officiate at the funeral/ memorial service. The family is welcome to select an outside minister to officiate, if desired. It is the family’s responsibility to make contact with the minister and communicate the necessary arrangements.
Sandhills does not have paid staff musicians. All musical arrangements (pianist, soloist, etc.) must be taken care of by the family. If needed, Sandhills can provide recorded hymns, instrumentals, and other appropriate music that can be played during the service.
The church facility is available at no charge to active members of Sandhills Community Church for the purpose of holding a funeral/memorial service. If desired, a room to accommodate a
meal for family members following the service can also be reserved at no cost. All food items for the meal will need to be provided and arranged for by family and friends. Sandhills will be happy to supply the necessary paper products.
There is no facility rental fee for non- members for the use of the auditorium for a funeral/memorial service. However, a nominal fee of $100.00 will be requested for miscellaneous costs including printed programs, a CD of the service, and a Sandhills sound technician as all church equipment must be operated by Sandhills personnel. Non-members wishing to have a meal following the service are also provided with a room at no charge, but a $50 fee will be requested to cover the costs of the necessary paper goods and table coverings. All food and beverage items will need to be provided by family and friends. Clean-up of items and room will be the responsibility of the guests using it.
There is no fee for a Sandhills minister; however, you may desire to give an honorarium to the officiating minister. Checks should be made payable to the individual minister. If the family has made arrangements with an available musician and/or soloist, typical honorariums for musicians and soloist range from $75 - $150 per person. Checks should be made payable to the individual musician(s) or soloist(s).
