Use of Cordelia is free but donations are always welcome.  For donations visit our donation page at CordeliaChurch.org.  There are 2 picnic tables, a 2 hole outhouse and water is available from the hand pump (pump 7 times to start).  We check and sweep the church weekly (April to December) and monthly during the winter.  You may want to check and do some deep cleaning before the activity.  Please cleanup after the activity.
We do not plow snow nor shovel.  In the winter, a snow berm often prevents easy access to the church so you may want to shovel a path before your activity.

For weddings, it is a bring your own officiant venue.   The church holds 50 guests comfortably.  There is a working pump organ.  If you need an officiant, organist or soloist we can send you contact information. 

We advise a site visit before reserving because the 1883 facilities are a reflection of pioneer life, but called primitive by modern standards.
