Having a Wedding? Need to Rent a Space?

The First Congregational Church of Stockton may be just the place!

The picturesque site on the Lake in the Brookside area of Stockton makes a wonderful venue for a variety of events, especially weddings.

Our staff is here to support you in a full range of ministry services. Our facilities are available to host you in this beautiful setting for those special occasions.

With our Lakeside Hall available to seat 200+ guests and another 50 guests on our enclosed deck. With stunning views of the lake and fountain from its many windows.

It is the perfect setting for an intimate wedding reception and it is affordable for the bride on a budget.

Your rehearsal dinner, wedding and reception can all be held here in our lovely facility.

***The Deck Overlooking the Lake Makes a Great Place for Photos***

The Sanctuary has been transformed into a beautiful, serene space with seating for up to 175.


We hope you will consider us at First Congregational Church for your special occasion. Please contact our Facilities Event Coordinator Tony Waltman 209-565-2151 or email for more information or to schedule a tour of the facility.



When planning a wedding service to take place in our building, please make arrangements to meet with our minister as soon as possible. He will guide you through the process of planning your  ceremony and  will officiate at  the service. If you want  someone else to officiate, our minister must approve who will be conducting the service.  Any ceremony taking place in our building is assumed to represent First Congregational Church of Stockton and The United Church of Christ, and it is our minister’s responsibility to uphold the principles we affirm.

Questions about Facility Rental please contact: Tony Waltman 209-565-2151 or email
