Use of the Church is for services traditionally conducted in a mainstream church/synagogue.  The Silver City Community Church provides guests the opportunity for religious services in a true country church where time has stood still for 50 years.  Every effort is made to continue the Church’s country traditions.  The Silver City Community and the Church Committee are committed to preserving the historic nature and traditions of the church. Common-sense rules have been established to allow for its use.  These rules are provided NOT to detract from the use of the Church but to ensure its historic nature. The Silver City Community Church Committee reserves the right to deny use.  All Committee Members will be aware of each Church function.
