First Church is a hub of community. The use of our facilities is not limited to members of our congregation. The chapel and sanctuary are available to rent for events such as wedding or baby showers, book discussions, concerts, classes, community meetings, and lectures.
The chapel is a flexible space and can be transformed for a variety of purposes for up to 100 people. The sanctuary is accessible for persons who use wheelchairs and comfortably seats up to 800 (including the upper balconies). Screens and a projector are available when coordinated in advance. Please note that neither space is air conditioned. Events open to the public require a security guard on premises (provided by the church at a rate of $20/hour), and restrictions for use of the parking lot may apply. Use of the organs or pianos requires permission from the organist/choirmaster.
Building use requests require approval from the church’s governing board, the Session. Proof of liability insurance may be requested. Alcohol is not permitted without specific approval from the Session and appropriate state licenses. To begin your rental inquiry, please complete and submit the following form.
