Planning a Wedding

Our lovely sanctuary is the perfect place for your wedding. It seats 280 comfortably and is air-conditioned. The administrative wing has a parlor just right for changing and is immediately adjacent to a large lavatory. Facilities are accessible to the mobility impaired. In the mid to late afternoon, the sun through the stained glass windows creates a golden glow that adds a special quality to your very special day.

Historic Cemetery

Our Historic cemetery, which partially encircles the sanctuary, holds the remains of church members, American Revolutionary War Patriots, and the remains of other individuals who fought in American wars dating from the early 1800s to the 1960s. Prominent Pastor’s burial places are marked with larger monuments. The cemetery is full and was closed for burials in the 1960s. ​​​​​​​

Memorial Garden

The Memorial Garden, a crescent-shaped area situated adjacent to the sanctuary, is set aside for interment of cremation ashes. Church members and their families may contact the church Memorial Garden Committee to reserve a space in the Memorial Garden to arrange for interment of a loved one’s remains.

American Baptist Churches is one of the most diverse Christian denominations today, with approximately 5,000 local congregations comprised of 1.3 million members across the United States and Puerto Rico.


The United Church of Christ (UCC) is a distinct and diverse community of Christians that come together as one church to join faith and action.  With more than 5,100 churches and 1.1 million members across the U.S., the UCC serves God in the co-creation of a just and sustainable world.  


We believe in a God that is still speaking, a God that is all-loving and inclusive. We are a church that welcomes and accepts everyone as they are, where your mind is nourished as much as your soul.
