STEP ONE | CHECK THE CALENDAR FOR AVAILABILITY
Birthday parties at The Ark are scheduled on a "first come, first serve" basis through our online request form. Please view the calendar below. The text "RESERVED Ark Party" indicates that date and time have already been requested. Please choose another date and time that says "OPEN Ark Party" indicating it has not been requested (or it has been recently requested but not yet posted to calendar). "CLOSED" indicates that it is not available to the public.
STEP TWO | READ OUR ARK FACILITY USAGE POLICY
Click here to read the Ark Facility Usage Policy. You will have to agree to these policies on your request form.
STEP THREE | REVIEW THE FEES AND CANCELLATION POLICY
- GracePoint Church Active Member Rate | $90
NON-MEMBER RATE | Payment of the fees will be in 2 installments. The 1st installment is $100. You will receive a confirmation email which will include payment due date as well as a mailing address. All checks are to be made payable to "GracePoint Church." Receipt of the 1st installment guarantees that we will not release the time and date to another requester. The 2nd and final installment payment of the remaining $80 is not due until the day of the actual party.
GRACEPOINT ACTIVE MEMBER RATE | GracePoint Church Active Members payments are to be made in two equal installments of $45. You will receive a confirmation email which will include payment due date as well as a mailing address. All checks are to be made payable to "GracePoint Church." Receipt of the 1st installment guarantees that we will not release the time and date to another requester. The 2nd and final installment payment of the remaining $45 is not due until the day of the actual party.
Please note: The requester who completes the online form and checks the box to agree to policies, fees, and regulations will be financially liable for all damages and resource use.
THIRTY-DAY CANCELLATION POLICY | If 30-days notice is given with your cancellation, we will gladly refund your first installment; or you may choose to apply your installment towards an Ark Party Reservation on a future date. If you cancel without a 30-days notice due to unforeseen circumstances (travel, illness, etc.), you forfeit your first installment that was made to hold the reservation. If you choose to reserve another date for a future party, another 1st installment of $100 will be due to hold the new date ($45 if GracePoint Church Active Member).
STEP FOUR | MAKE YOUR REQUEST
Completing this form only requests the reservation. Initially, you will receive an automatic response confirming your request has been successfully submitted. You will receive an additional, personalized email response within three business days. It will advise if you are the first to request that day and time, and, if so, what your next steps are for submitting your first installment to hold your reservation. If you have not received this additional email response within three business days, please call the church office at 972-462-1643.
After you have selected a date and time that is open on the calendar, have read The Ark Facility Usage Policy, and have reviewed the fees and cancellation policy, please...
STEP FIVE | LOCK-IN YOUR RESERVATION
If the Ark is available, your personal email confirmation will include instructions on when, to whom, and to where to send your first installment to permanently hold your reservation. If you do not receive this additional email within three business days (the Ark Ambassador works primarily on Fridays & Saturdays). You can call our office at 972-462-1643, but only the Ark Ambassador will be able to confirm party information. Please also remember to check your "junk" or "spam" email folder as sometimes our emails get sorted into these folders by mistake. Emails will come from TheArk@gracepointcoppell.org. When we have received your first installment payment, your reservation will be locked in.
