We are happy and honored
to offer you the use of our historic building for your wedding.
The Christian wedding is a unique ceremony. The rite places marriage in
a context that is different from that of a civil ceremony or a social
event. The couple exchanges vows as an act of worship to God in the

are two locations within the church where you can hold your wedding
ceremony. The Sanctuary has a maximum capacity of 450 people and,
because of the layout, looks fine with a small audience. Alternatively,
if you prefer a smaller, more cozy atmosphere, Grace Chapel is also
available. The chapel holds up to 100 people. We provide candelabra,
aisleabras and floral stands.

pillars, and stained glass windows, there are many different artistic
and elegant options for backgrounds and settings.
