The Campus

Campus_600_DS

First Congregational Church is located in a residential neighborhood on Mansfield’s south side. The 30,000 square foot church building includes a main sanctuary, chapel, Columbarium, library with associated formal reading and meeting rooms, and church offices. In addition, Blymyer Hall, the social area, is well equipped with a stage and state of the art kitchen facility.

Located on the lower level is a full scope of church school meeting rooms, choir rehearsal room, and the Mayflower Room, a larger, casual meeting space with a social area and small adjoining kitchen. 

Parking adjoins the church and an additional parking lot is located across Marion Avenue for overflow parking. The church recently acquired more adjacent property and is expanding our parking. Rounding out the campus is a parsonage, located across the street from the church, which was donated to the church by a lifelong parishioner and former church school director.

The most beautiful feature of the main church building is the main Sanctuary, where hundreds gather for the 10:30AM Sunday service to worship as a true family of faith.

In addition to the Mansfield property, First Congregational owns a 56 acre wooded retreat, Hemlock Trails,  located adjacent to the Mohican National Forest some 15 miles south of the city. This property, located along the Clearfork River, offers walking trails and a beautiful 65 foot waterfall. The facility includes a pavilion for meetings, camping and social events

Recently, the church granted an easement to a local land conservancy district so that it could establish a walking trail on a portion of the property. The trail, which will extend from the city of Butler to Malabar State Park, will be available for use by the general public, thus affording non members a look at the beauty offered by First Congregational Church.
