 Your wedding at First Church will be a memory that lasts forever. Both our West Campus and Downtown Campus are available to book for weddings. The West Campus Celebration Center, which seats 396 people, is located on the western edge of Lawrence and provides a spectacular view of Kansas prairie land. The Downtown Sanctuary, which seats 600 people, is located in the heart of downtown Lawrence. The Sanctuary is over 120 years old and features a center aisle, gorgeous stained-glass, and the largest pipe organ in Kansas.

If you have questions about our venues, policies or fees, please contact Deb Tyler.
