Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! We are delighted that you are considering our church to share this occasion with your family and friends. Since 1904 couples have exchanged vows and begun their lives together in our beautiful historic sanctuary. First United Methodist Church rejoices with you, and we are eager to work with you to help make this special day beautiful and meaningful.
Our Sanctuary and Wesley Hall (for receptions) are available to both members and non-members for your wedding. Our sanctuary seats approximately 180 people. If you choose to have your reception in Wesley Hall, this area will accommodate approximately 80 people seated, or 120 standing.
All scheduling needs to be done through the church office at 972-636-2291 or email at email@example.com. The church secretary will first check the availability of your desired date and time. Your confirmed day and time will be reserved when the Wedding Coordinator has received the security deposit and the completed Wedding Agreement. Please note that we cannot schedule weddings during Holy Week (Palm Sunday through Easter Day), the second Saturday of November due to an annual church function, or Christmas week.
Ministers and Officiants
You have the option of using our pastor to officiate your ceremony (subject to his or her schedule), or you may use another pastor. We welcome any ministers of Christian faith to officiate wedding ceremonies.
Wesley Hall (the building adjacent to the sanctuary via the breezeway) has a central gathering area for receptions. It can accommodate approximately 80 guests seated or 120 standing. Round and rectangle tables and chairs are available for use. If caterers are used they will be working under the supervision of the Wedding Coordinator. Smoking and alcoholic beverages are not allowed on church property.
