The sanctuary, chapel, and several rooms in the church school building are available to rent as follows:
The Sanctuary at First Baptist Church in Newton is a fine performance hall and has hosted many musical performances - including one that comfortably accommodated 700 people. It is also an attractive space to hold a wedding. In front is the chancel, which is like a stage. The pulpit, choir seating, and other furniture upon it can be removed. Folding chairs are stored nearby. The space also includes a Steinway concert piano and organ.
The chapel is adjacent to the sanctuary and measures approximately 33 feet by 48 feet with a 20 foot tall ceiling. There is no religious iconography in this space, and the windows face east. The room contains its own Steinway concert piano and is carpeted in red.
The Everts room measures 25 feet by 48 feet. It is a lovely, more formal, large space for a meeting or party. The room is furnished with a variety of cushioned sofas and chairs.
Fellowship Hall measures 33 feet by 48 feet. This casual space, adjacent to the large kitchen, is suitable for many types of functions.
The large kitchen is equipped with commercial-grade equipment, including a stove, oven, dishwasher, counter-top, and cookware.
Junior and Senior High Youth Rooms
These rooms offer a casual space with couches and tables.
