Facilities Use and Rentals

MLC’s facilities use and rentals are on the rise.  We have many outside groups renting different areas of the campus, often on a recurring basis.  Please be mindful of items left behind after your use such as service ware, decorations, all items specific to your event, etc.  Please “leave it better than you found it”. 

Everyone can find the campus schedule on the calendar on the MLC website and a weekly calendar is also posted at every entrance door on campus.


Along these same thoughts….

The Chinese Ministry has a guest family staying in the Upper Room of Johnson Hall, possibly for a few weeks.  Please respect their privacy and use of the space.
