Celebrate your love with us

Imagine walking down the aisle in our beautiful, historic sanctuary constructed in 1937 in the “Christopher Wren” architectural style. It seats 300 people and features soaring pillars and elegant granite and marble stonework in the narthex as you enter the church. The church also boasts the largest pure pipe organ between Chicago and Salt Lake City. With 6,000 pipes, our 126 rank Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ is among the largest instruments in the United States.

Preparation rooms for ceremony participants are available.

Experienced ministerial staff is available to perform wedding/commitment ceremonies and assist with planning, or you may choose your own officiant. If you would like to use the minister of First Baptist as an officiant, please contact us in advance.

Our organist may be scheduled to play for your wedding and a grand piano also is available.

For more information or to inquire about reserving a date for your wedding/commitment ceremony call the church office at 303-861-2501 or e-mail
