"A New Church Home", An Eventective User from Austin Texas, Downtown
Recently Times have been tough. Not everyone is able to do everything that they want go places and see things that they choose, money is tight. My church and I fully realized that fact especially when it became clear that we wouldn't be able to pay the rent on our previous church building, it was just too expensive so we finally faced the facts and left. For a while we were having small church sessions from our pastors home but our church family was to big and we needed more space after a month we found that the answer had been under our noses the whole time. Our local Austin Convention Center dedicatedly rents us a medium sized room every Sunday month after month and the total amount we pay for the month is less than what we paid for our old building, about 1/3 less! The Department manager sat down and met with us to discuss our request, since people normally don't rent rooms dedicatedly, and we were able to work out a price and deal. Everything is very well off now we clean up after each service and no one bothers us and we usually can make the average amount of noise without bothering other people. The Austin Convention Center provided us with a temporary church home while we save for a permanent building the management and staff are very kind and respectful, so long as you follow the rules, and the pricing is affordable the center turned out to be just what we needed.
