Vending Guidelines

If you are interested in food, merchandise, or information vending, you will find important information below.  The planning committee is excited about the opportunity to worship with fellow believers from far and wide.  You are responsible for presenting a quality product and a humble attitude as we work together to show the love of Christ to our customers.  The requirements below will highlight areas of concern we have as a committee but should not be considered all encompassing.  Thank you again and we pray that your day is successful and your mission is accomplished should you choose to partner with us.
