Gay Friendly: Gay Wedding Event Location in Mount Prospect, IL, USA
The South Church welcomes you and invites you to celebrate your union in our beautiful sanctuary. Built in 1937, our church building captures an air of the traditional as well as the modern. Its white frame structure is patterned on a colonial design that sets it off from most other churches in the area. New stained glass windows were installed in the 1990s. The windows' modern designs allow a great deal of natural light into our air-conditioned sanctuary while depicting important scenes from the history of the faith. The centerpiece of our altar space is a stained glass window of Jesus, encircled by a rainbow ribbon. Our front doors open onto a wide staircase that spills onto the lawn, providing a perfect setting for your guests to congratulate you after your ceremony, and for keepsake photos to be taken.
Set in a lovely residential neighborhood in Mount Prospect, Illinois, The South Church has ample parking for you and your guests. This northwest suburban location is about 20 miles from Chicago, easily accessed by major highways and only a few blocks from the Metra Station. Our location places The South Church near many restaurants and banquet halls, and our wedding package includes the services of the pastor, the music director/organist, and our wedding coordinator.
The church and surrounding grounds provide such a lovely backdrop for wedding pictures that many photographers include photos taken at The South Church in their portfolios. When you are married at The South Church we place a congratulatory message featuring your names on the church sign, which also makes for a memorable picture.
Since its inception The South Church has served the needs of people from many different faith traditions. We are a church that encourages our members and friends to explore their questions and to construct a faith that is meaningful to them. We take pride in our mission work, which serves mainly local needs. We offer an ongoing class in World Religions, believing that God has spoken in many different ways throughout human history.
For years The South Church has supported equal rights for gay men and lesbian women, and both the current and previous pastors have performed civil unions for years. We were honored to be able to perform our first same sex marriage in July of 2014.
We hope you consider having your wedding at The South Church. If you are looking for a church setting with a friendly staff, please give us a call. More information and photos may be found on our website.
