There is comfortable seating for 350 people in the pews and an additional 150 chairs can be added if need be. The choir loft seats 50, bringing the total to 550.
The McCullen Center for Christian Education and Fellowship was built in 2005 and includes modern administrative offices, six classrooms, library, conference room, and a 5,000 square-foot assembly/banquet hall, plus a full commercial kitchen. The main hall (known as “Gard Hall”) will accommodate up to 700 people in assembly mode, or approximate 350 people in banquet configuration. The hall can be subdivided into either 2 or 3 rooms, using removable floor-to-ceiling partitions.
