Wedding & Building Usage
We welcome and encourage the public to use our facility for services of matrimony*, recitals, concerts, graduations, public meetings, readings, lectures, cultural events, and the like. Acoustics in the sanctuary are excellent, and the seating is in the round, making North Hills a favorite venue for many orchestras, music groups, choirs and recitals. The church campus is also easily located in Troy at the intersections of Adams Road and Big Beaver, and is nestled in a tranquil, three-acre treed property. Many excellent restaurants are less than a mile away at The Sommerset Collection and along Big Beaver road, and many banquet facilities are less than five minutes distance by car.
The building is a contemporary structure, with accents of oak and copper and interior furnishings hinting at the Arts-and-Crafts style. The 200-seat sanctuary is designed with a "nave in the round" concept: the congregation literally gathers around a central Lord's Table, pulpit and baptismal font in four sloping bays. Natural light from an expansive celestory window floods the space with natural light. The air-conditioned sanctuary has a state-of-the art sound system, an 8' Yamaha Grand Piano, a two-manual Allen Organ and solid oak seating. In all, it is a remarkably simple, beautiful and sacred space.
You may also rent the sky-lighted Fellowship Hall for your reception. For a sit-down dinner, the Hall can accommodate up to 130 diners; for a stand up hors d'ouevres reception, many more guests could be accommodated, and the adjoining, beautiful Atrium could also be utilized. You can use our chairs and tables, and you can use the kitchen. The Hall is not available on Saturday nights.
Linking the Fellowship Hall to the sanctuary is the Atrium. Two new restrooms--fully handicapped accessible--are tiled and modern. The Atrium's floor to ceiling windows flood this space with light, and give full panoramic views of the memorial garden with its brick walkway, teak benches and striking bronze sculpture by the late Douglas Chick. The garden is canopied by 30-year old Red Bud trees planted by the church's first pastor. The garden is dramatically lit at night, and is also viewed from the Fellowship Hall.
We ask an up-front deposit for damages and refund the balance to you afterward. We reserve your date when we receive your non-refundable deposit, which is then applied to your total fee. The balance is due one month before your event.
Contact the office to arrange dates and to request a building use packet which contains more information, an application and fee schedule.
*The church's pastor must be the officiate. He is also available for pre-marital counseling.
