West Shore is a dynamic and versatile facility which accommodates hundreds of meetings and events year round. Priority is given to the ministries and task forces within the church, however, non-members and outside organizations whose purpose and philosophy is consistent with our mission are welcome. The building is a modern, inviting place to hold religious ceremonies and social gatherings. Our building consists of small, medium and large meeting spaces that can be utilized in a number of ways.
The Sanctuary offers an accessible, modern and welcoming space for West Shore members, private individuals and organizations, frequently used for weddings, piano recitals, concerts, speakers, and other community activities. It is a popular site for interfaith couples.
The maximum seating capacity is 335 people however, the space also works well for smaller groups of 50 or more. The audio system was upgraded in 2017, and can be available for a small additional fee.
The Chancel floor area can be set up with chairs for small discussion groups. Suggested capacity for this type of set up is approximately 16 people.
Baker Hall can be used for large receptions, weddings, programs and other community events. The church has access to a wooden dance floor for special events. We are a smoke-free campus; which means there is no smoking permitted in the building or on or around the church grounds.

The Chapel is a multi-purpose room with floor-to-ceiling glass windows that overlook a gracefully landscaped Memorial Garden and Courtyard area.

There are two kitchens available.

Just down the hall, the Rotunda Kitchen, much smaller in space, is equipped with a refrigerator and microwave oven with plenty of counter space.
The Fireside Room has an elegant “drawing room” feel. Recently refurbished, it can hold approximately 30 people for a small reception, speaker series or art show. At the heart of the Fireside Room is a gas log fireplace. One wall is entirely glass and overlooks the Courtyard and Memorial Gardens. If you are interested in a business meeting with tables and chairs, the space can be set up for 24 people.
