To see what is available and start the reservation process, please fill in our reservation form with your information and preferences. We will respond to your request in the order which it has been received. You can expect an email response from our friendly scheduler within 1-3 business days.
We require payment to confirm. We will hold the space for up to 2 weeks or until we have received payment and the space is confirmed. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, checks, and cash.
Each of our rooms is offered on an hourly, sliding scale rate. The lower rate covers utilities and staffing costs, the higher rate covers upkeep and program improvements. When confirming your event, we’ll ask you to choose a rate that works best for you. We also have a subsidized rate for nonprofits and social mission groups. Please see each space’s page (linked from the images above) for individual room rates and more information on room specifics.
You and/or your group are only allowed to use the room(s) you have reserved.
You and/or your group are responsible for set-up and clean-up. We give a complimentary 15 minutes on either end of your reservation for set-up and clean-up. If you need more time for set-up and clean-up, you must include that in your reservation.
Rooms need to be cleaned, including vacuuming, taking out the trash/recycling, and wiping down the tables. Each room has a cleaning bucket provided for the group’s use.
Please leave the room the same way you found it, including furniture. Rooms may be rearranged, but must be returned to the original layout. Furniture may not be moved in and out of rooms without prior arrangements.

Welcoming & Safer Space Policy
We partner in using this historic church building with Mt. Tabor Presbyterian Church, a Christian congregation committed to bridge-building and conversation with all faiths. Out of respect for this historic faith tradition and to maintain a healthy relationship with the congregation, there are certain events that we may request to have a conversation about, ask to revise, or decide they are not the best fit here.
Safer Space Agreement: As a community space, we are shaping a culture that encourages the well-being of all people from every race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, faith/religion, ability, age, access to resources, and life situation.
If your event is public, we will publish the title, description and any pertinent information you want on our website. You are also welcome to bring in one flyer to post on our community bulletin board in the coffee house.
For a 95% refund, cancellation must be made 30 days prior to the reserved date. We keep 5% to cover our staff time and bank processing fees.
For a 75% refund, cancellation must be made 14 days prior to the reserved date.
For a 50% refund, cancellation must be made 2 days prior to the reserved date.
If a cancellation is made within 48 hours of the event, there will be no refund.
TaborSpace and Mt. Tabor Presbyterian Church are not responsible for theft or loss of any property or belongings brought on to the church property (including the parking lot). Users are expected to take reasonable precautions to protect both personal and church property from loss and damage.
Users assume the risks for liability resulting from injury to persons using the facilities during a non-congregational-sponsored event. Users will also reimburse the church for any damage to church property or equipment resulting from the organization’s or individual’s use of the facility.
