Renting Our Facilities

In addition to wedding celebrations, we welcome any individual or not-for-profit group seeking a place to meet for purposes which are consistent with our commitment to life-affirming work in the local and world communities.
Contact us to discuss your wedding, meeting, or celebration.
Our Marriage Policy:
In accordance with our 2007 Open and Affirming [ONA] Resolution, our Pastor is authorized to officiate at marriage ceremonies for all couples who are willing to participate in Spring Creek's process of preparation for commitment to one another. This includes unions for same gender couples as well as partners of opposite genders. Our church affirms and supports mature, stable, life-long relationships, and celebrates them with God's blessing.
Any persons who are considering marriage at Spring Creek United Church of Christ are encouraged to meet with our Pastor to discuss their future plans. Church membership is not a requirement to be married here.
Guest officiants are allowed with the approval of our pastor and church leadership.
Our garden and fountain area expand event and meeting options.
The tranquility of our memorial garden offers a peaceful place for prayer and meditation by the bubbling fountain, and visitors may also stroll the rustic nature path through the trees to the creek. It's not unusual to spot wild turkeys, foxes, even deer, and the noise of city traffic is muted by bird calls and rustling leaves.
Our church family maintains the garden and grounds through volunteer initiatives, and we take pride in the beautiful results.
Guests are reminded that our entire facility, including church building, memorial gardens, and woodlands, is a smoke-fee campus. Littering the property will result in appropriate cleaning fees, and rental deposits will be subject to forfeit.
Spring Creek United Church of Christ is centrally located in northeast Rockford with easy access to Interstate 90. Click HERE for directions and map.
Our updated sanctuary space with its hardwood chancel and movable seating offers plenty of natural light plus a variety of illumination options for both day and evening events. Our smoke-free campus accommodates 150 guests comfortably and has a maximum capacity of 200 within the sanctuary space. Outdoor ceremonies may be held in our gardens from May through October, with the indoor sanctuary quickly accessible in case of inclement weather.
A spacious reception room with fireplace, tables, and adjacent kitchen is also available.
Our first-floor gathering, worship, meeting, education, childcare, food preparation areas and restrooms are all designed to offer maximum accessibility to persons with physical limitations, as are the formal outdoor spaces. The gardens and natural rock fountain provide an attractive background for photography from April through October. In the fall and winter months, changing leaves and snowy woods offer a lovely vista outside our large windows.
Inquiries may be made via the church office to learn more about rental opportunities and wedding planning. We will be happy to discuss fees and available dates, and will assist in completing the rental booking paperwork. Rental fees are assessed in a fair and equitable manner to assist with building expenses and property maintenance.
