Space Use and Rental

Our facilities are available to members and non-members for weddings/union ceremonies, funerals or memorial services, and other significant rites of passage, as well as for small concerts and recitals, classes, conferences and workshops.

Our sanctuary is a charming and attractive space with wood floors and painted a serene wall color. Sunlight from its many windows fill the room and when the windows are opened on warm days, cross ventilation provides a refreshing environment. Of course, the air conditioner can also be used for cooling the space. The Sanctuary can seat approximately 85 people, and has excellent acoustics for musical recitals and chamber groups. Our sound system is accessible and easy to use. We are conveniently located just off Rte 301, south of Rte 50 and north of Central Avenue (MD 214).
We can also offer reception facilities in our Fellowship Hall, which is adjacent to the Sanctuary, but it may not accomodate more than 50 people. We have a separate room just off the Fellowship Hall that is self-contained and may be used for changing or personal preparations for your ceremony.


Weddings and Union Ceremonies

Many couples are not affiliated with a religious group, and others may have ties to more than one religious tradition. Our tradition honors and welcomes each individuals spiritual search. Our Minister and Minister Emeritus are available to help couples create ceremonies that celebrate what is meaningful and beautiful for each of them.

Funeral or Memorial Services

Our tradition upholds the inherent worth and dignity of each person. Families without religious affiliations, or with several religious affiliations, may choose to honor the lives of their loved ones in our Sanctuary. Our Ministers can give careful consideration to the thoughts, feelings, and well being of the family, as well as to the unique life of the deceased.

Classroom Rental

A 14 x16 foot classroom is available for small group meetings or classes of 10-15 people. Any group affiliated or non-affiliated may apply to use this space. If a workshop or conference is planned this space may be used in conjunction with the Fellowship Hall for food/beverage service not requiring kitchen facilities.

Recitals or Concerts

The splendid acoustics and comfortable seating in our Sanctuary make it ideal for recitals and small concerts or theatre groups. Our Sanctuary seats approximately 85 people. The adjacent Fellowship Hall offers facilities for light refreshments.
For further information about using our facilities, please contact the Church Building Supervisor, Sally Raymond (sally.raymond@yahoo.com) or Sid Soderholm (finance@goodloeuu.org).
