Facility Scheduler
If you are planning an event or activity at Unity Temple or the Gale House, you must first reserve the space on our facility scheduler. To place a room reservation request, visit the link below, check the availability for the date and room you wish to reserve, and then select "Add Event" from the menu options at the top of the page. Please complete as much information as possible. Your reservation is not complete until you have received a confirmation email from the office, usually within 2 business days.  More information on reserving space can be found in the 2018-2019 Lay Leadership Guide.
