The Northlake sanctuary accommodates from 20 to 225 guests. The sanctuary furniture can be arranged in a number of different configurations. The photos on this page and others show a variety of set-up options and decorating ideas: theatre style seating for weddings, concerts, or lectures can seat up to 225, round tables for receptions, dinner parties and luncheons can accommodate 185, or work tables can be set up for art workshops, quilting parties, or other events. Or, the floor can be cleared for exercise classes or for dancing at a reception, with space for a band on the stage.


The venue is large enough to be flexible—some smaller weddings have used the front half of the sanctuary for the ceremony while the back half is set up for the reception, or conferences have arranged theater seating in the front with tables for small group break-outs or lunch in the back.


The building is beautiful in its own right, and can accommodate a variety of decorations to suit your style.
