Our historic church building
The original part of our church building, the sanctuary, was built in 1865. The vestibule and bell tower were added in 1898. Fellowship Hall and the kitchen (both to the rear), and first-time indoor bathrooms(!) were added sometime in the 1950’s. Click a photo and scroll through our gallery.
AROUND OUR CHURCH
The bell tower and vestibule were added in 1898.
This bell is rung at every Sunday service.
The front of our sanctuary holds many special gifts.
Our doors standing open on In-gathering Sunday.
This 1890’s door hardware adds to the character of our church.
These chairs were used in the Norwalk Ohio Universalist Church from 1871 until 1991, when the church closed. The chairs were saved from the building by members of the Westfield Center Universalist Church, who gifted our congregation with them in 2000, on the occasion of the purchase of our current building.
Our entry was added in 1898.
This beautiful banner was designed and made for us by AnnMarie McCallister.
We hear marvelous music played on our piano including beautiful classical pieces and exciting choral and rousing hymn accompaniments.
Our sanctuary provides a pleasant space for our worship services.
This original window was moved from the back of the sanctuary (the original building), to the vestibule during one of the remodelings many years ago.
The pretty vestibule light is a more recent addition.
The fabric for this banner was dyed by the children. The banner was made by AnnMarie McCallister.
This marvelous piece of art was created by some of our children. The text reads: “Each is different… All are equal !”
Nielsen House was purchased and dedicated in 2006. This is the view from the church building.
Nielsen House is across the street from the church parking lot.
How wonderful to be comfortable to share ideas and learn!
Posters of the Unitarian Universalist children’s principles are hung in many of the rooms in Nielsen House and reflect Unitarian Universalist principles.
Doesn’t this look like an inviting place to go learning?
This beautiful carved wooden sign hangs outside Nielsen House.
