Facility Use/Rental

Our sanctuary and other rooms are available to rent for music lessons and recitals, weekly or monthly small group meetings, weddings, memorials, milestone celebrations, and other events. We are located on Fair Oaks Boulevard (near Sunrise Blvd.) with our buildings set back from the street on a small hill. This allows us to be conveniently located to Fair Oaks, Rancho Cordova, and Carmichael yet also retain a quieter, more private feel once on our campus.

Music Lessons and Recitals:

Music lessons can be conducted in our choir room located in the sanctuary. An upright piano, chairs, and music stands are available for your use. As a music teacher, you will appreciate the privacy of holding lessons here. While the choir room is not sound proof, you will not have competing lessons taking place in a studio right next door. Recitals may be held in our sanctuary which offers excellent acoustics in a welcoming setting. Our chancel / stage area is a lovely golden oak. We have an organ and a grand piano which are available for your use.

Weekly or Monthly Small Group Meetings:

We have several spaces of varying sizes to offer for your small group meetings.

  • Wesley Hall is located just west of the sanctuary across the lawn and has a maximum capacity of 35. It is carpeted with access to chairs and tables.
  • Potter Rooms 1 & 2 are located behind the sanctuary and are excellent rooms for hobby classes. The accordian-style room divider can be opened to create one space or drawn close to create two separate areas. There are sinks and counter space available at both ends of Potter 1 & 2.
  • For larger groups, the Sanctuary has a 183-person maximum capacity. The seating in the sanctuary consists of moveable, upholstered chairs, which is a nice feature for those who want to set them up differently than in traditional rows. Tables are also available for use in the sanctuary.
  • Rates for these spaces vary according to meeting length and frequency. Please call or email for more information. (916-961-6631; office@fairoaksumc.org)

    Weddings, Memorial Services, and Milestone Celebrations:

    You are welcome to have your own pastor or an officiant of your choosing preside over your service in our church. For more information, call the church office at 916-961-6631.

    Keep in mind, our sanctuary has a 183 person maximum capacity. It is comfortably climate controlled. It has the feel of an intimate chapel with a peaked ceiling and windows along one side. Walls are a soft white inside and the carpet is a dark green. Stained glass windows adorn the side and top of the sanctuary. The seating in the sanctuary consists of moveable, upholstered chairs, which is a nice feature for those who want to set them up differently than in traditional rows.

    Our chancel / stage area is a lovely golden oak. We have an organ and a piano which are available for your use.

    If you are looking for a reception site, our sanctuary and our Wesley Building are nice options. The Wesley Building is located just west of the sanctuary across the lawn and has a maximum capacity of 35. If you have rented our sanctuary for your wedding, you may want to use the Wesley Building as a place for the bride and bridesmaids to dress or, for your reception.

    And, you may want to rent the kitchen (which is next to the Sanctuary) to prepare your food. The kitchen houses four ovens, a large gas stove, coffee makers, a commercial dishwasher, and a long serving counter. The kitchen helps make your cake and coffee reception very convenient here at our church. Even if you plan to serve a full meal at your reception, you will find the kitchen well equipped. Please note that alcohol is not permitted on the church premises.

    If you are in need of wedding flowers, we suggest our in-house florist, Flower Fiesta. Call Flower Fiesta at (916) 225-2623 or (916) BAL-ANCE. Or go to the website at www.flowerfiesta.com to view testimonials and unique wedding bouquets and arrangements.
