We strive as a community of faith to… nurture and respect all of God’s children.
[from the Hillcrest Mission Statement]
We accept all people into the full life of the church and honor all couples who wish to be married.
The Hillcrest campus with its beautiful worship space and grounds is an oasis, a sanctuary, and a place for celebration. We invite you to experience it and to experience the love, nurture, and welcome that our congregation provides.
Contemporary in design, our Sanctuary seats up to 300 comfortably, yet just as comfortably can accommodate more intimate groups. Its beautiful woodwork, majestic A-frame ceiling, and subtle stained glass, are welcoming and inspiring. Within the Sanctuary are housed the George W. Mead Memorial Pipe organ, a custom instrument originally built in 1904, as well as fine grand piano. The worship space also features a state of the art sound system with both hand-held and wireless microphones available.
We provide a Wedding Coordinator who will introduce you to our facilities, assist with vendors and other arrangements, organize the rehearsal, and support you on your wedding day.
One of our pastors will work closely with you to plan and perform the ceremony, as well as counsel with you in the months prior. We value all faith backgrounds and welcome your pastor, priest, rabbi or spiritual leader to officiate as well. While we provide an organist, you are also welcome to use our Music Director or arrange for other musicians.
Also available on our campus is the Fellowship Hall, which can accommodate your reception with seating at table-clothed round and square tables and chairs, sound system, computer projector, and full kitchen facilities.
Your wedding at Hillcrest includes:
- rehearsal and ceremony
