That Davy Jones (a family-friendly but wholly secular musician) is welcome to the Ocean Grove facilities indicates that those facilities are not solely for religious purposes, but in fact are meant to serve the general public to some extent. However, the OGCMA claims that the United Methodist denomination specifically bans civil unions in its facilities, as it does not ban concerts by former members of the Monkees.
