How can me and my band play at my town's local church for a party?

My towns local church every month has these parties where it's like a teen night only you have to be 13 to get in and last time I was there they had a band of 3 performing and me and my friend (lead guitarist of our band) thought to ourselves "Is there anyway we can do this?" we don't play or sing gospel or Christian music we sing and play country rock, country metal, or plain country sometimes kinda like Pantera, Tenafly Viper and HellYeah type of country hard rock but some of our songs have curse words in them and our band name were gonna have to change it so we can get in. My question is how can we book a concert and perform and would our look be acceptable we look like a country band playing rock and roll with cowboy hats. I'm the bassist/lead singer, my best friend is lead guitar and back up vocals we have a drummer, rhythm guitarist, acoustic guitar player and a banjo player because we also do some bluegrass mixed with hard rock.

You should probably pass. If there are cuss words, there are probably ideals and subjects in your songs that don't fit the venue either. Just because you want to play there doesn't mean you should.

We're all 15 that's the only place I can think of.

Your choices concerning the content of your band limits where you can play. It's a hard fact. You don't see Metallica doing gospel concerts.

I don't think they would allow rock or cuss words you should talk to the person in charge or ask anyone at the church with info

Well i would say talk to the pastor and cleanup your songs. Dont put any cuss words in them and talk about wholesome things.
