Memorial Garden and Columbarium
A Columbarium provides a place on Church property for the permanent preservation of cremation ashes for members and their immediate family. It is an answer, at least in part, to the age-old concern of the Christian community to “participate in the proper disposition and identification of the earthly remains of those who have shared the fellowship.”
The Memorial Garden Columbarium is possibly Chilson’s most unique feature. It is home to two columbarium crosses (no niches are currently available in the crosses), outdoor stadium seating for 100, and a memorial wall which houses more than 70 additional niches. The Memorial Garden has hosted worship services, funerals, weddings and outdoor concerts.
For more information about reserving the Memorial Garden for your next event or if you’d like to purchase a niche in the memorial wall, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our worship center is a multi purpose room that can host any small or large events. We have hosted concerts, fundraisers, banquets, weddings, funerals, blood drives, game nights, vaccination clinics and parties for as many as 350 people. The worship center is equipped with theater lighting, a customizable stage, multimedia screens, a complete sound system, a full kitchen and plenty of tables and chairs for your event.
The carpet in our worship center is embossed with a 3/4 basketball court (basketball goals are not currently available) and volleyball court (volleyball net is available upon request). Contact the church office for the full inventory of available sports equipment. We have hosted basketball leagues, soccer practices, and volleyball activities. Contact the church office for more information about rental fees for the Worship Center.
For the usage of our sound system a Chilson Hills technician must be present. The fee for a sound technician is $75
Lower Level (Kontz Fellowship Hall)
Our Lower Level is ideal for large meetings, or medium-sized events (150 or less). Renovated in 2011, the Lower Level has access to break-out meeting rooms, and two restrooms with showers. The Lower Level is equipped with a small stage and a warming kitchen as well. Audio visual equipment is available upon request. In addition to worship services, The Lower Level has been used for baby and wedding showers, large meetings, preschool graduation ceremonies, fundraisers, and recreational activities. Contact the church office for more information about using The Lower Level for your next event.
There are numerous large and small classrooms and meeting spaces available throughout the building. Whether you are looking for an intimate setting or a place to spread out, we have a space for you and for your group. Contact the church office about which room would best suit your needs.
