The Grayson Baptist Association regards marriage as a Biblical institution established by God as described by Scripture. We believe Biblical marriage can only occur between one man and one woman. This association recognizes that marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment. Accordingly, this lake property facility will not be allowed for use overnight by unwed couples, same-sex unions or same-sex marriages, nor promiscuity by any means outside of the marriage vows.
No Alcoholic beverages on premises; no smoking in buildings or pavilion area.
