Wedding Application

June 20, 2012


We welcome you to First United Methodist for your wedding experience. We know that each couple who comes to us is unique and ought to have a unique experience. We will work with you, however there are values of the congregation that you must agree to. For this reason, you will be charged at $300.00 deposit. The $100 non-refundable portion of the deposit will be applied to your costs. The $200.00 will be returned two weeks following your wedding provided that you abide by our values.

1.   First United Methodist is a sacred place. This means that the building and its contents will be treated with respect. Weddings are understood to be sacred. As

such, the staff has final say as to appropriateness of any wedding's content.

2.   First UMC has a policy of no alcohol or drugs (including cigarettes ) in the church building. No alcohol on the church grounds, either. Failure to abide by this value

forfeits your deposit.

3.   First United Methodist respects all people. This means that everyone will be

treated graciously, even if they do not look like we do. We have a free community

lunch on Saturdays and members of the lunch are our guests and should be treated

as such.

4.   First United Methodist have final say on appropriate behavior. If there is no staff present, our wedding coordinators have this authority.


If you can agree to these values, then we welcome you to First United Methodist

and will work with you to make your wedding day a memorable one that reflects the personalities of the parties involved.
