Use Our Building

Interested in being married at First Church? See our Weddings page.

Most of the rooms in our beautiful, historic building are available for community use. Wi-Fi is available throughout the building. Generally speaking, we charge $25/hour for all rooms in the church except for the Sanctuary and the Gathering Hall, which are $50/hour. If food is involved, there is also a $25/hour cleaning charge. Each of these fees is negotiable, and subject to change on a case-by-case basis. We do not charge rental fees to church members — however the custodial charge for food-related clean-up is non-negotiable. We also welcome donations to the church from groups who are not charged a fee.
