Event Rental

1928 Cornerstone
Our church facilities provide a traditional feel for weddings and other events without the restrictions or iconography of any particular religion or ideology. Our rental spaces provide flexibility for many different types of events and activities.

The main church building was built in 1928 - 1929 and was designed to look like a New England Congregational Church inside and out.

The Sanctuary has a center aisle leading to the pulpit. There is a balcony with two staircases leading down from each side. The Sanctuary seats up to 250 people, including the balcony seating. The Reuter pipe organ boasts two keyboards and 24 ranks.
