An ideal setting for meetings and special events
First Church is an open and affirming congregation. As such, we open our doors to the community for meetings, dances, wedding receptions, theatre company rehearsals and music groups— provided the event or group does not oppose the basic tenants of the church's constitution. You should also be aware that First Church is a non-smoking environment.

Terms Of Agreement
Due to the high cost of building maintenance, we must charge non-members and members alike for all facility usage, unless the rooms are used for the direct support of one of our missions. Please consult our business administrator if you are unsure whether or not your meeting qualifies. Facility rentals must be paid in full by cash, money order, cashier’s check or personal checks before the event occurs. Checks that are returned for non-sufficient funds are subject to bank charges.
