Weddings at Peace UMC
THE CHRISTIAN SERVICE OF MARRIAGE
At Peace UMC weddings are occasions of both joy and reverence—joy because of the gifts of love and happiness that the bride and groom have found in each other, and reverence because of the deep commitment they have made to live out their vows under the grace of God.
A wedding at Peace UMC is an act of worship. It is appropriate for the service to include special music, hymns, Scripture readings and other sacred readings, and a brief message by the minister. The officiating clergy will review the order of service and appropriate options with the couple.
It is important that you verify all information with your local marriage license office or county clerk before making any wedding plans. A wedding at Peace UMC cannot take place without a valid marriage license. Please bring the license with you at the time of the rehearsal.
DRESSING FACILITIES FOR THE BRIDE
A dressing room is available for the bride and her bridesmaid’s use on the day of the wedding. The groom and all other members of the wedding party are encouraged to arrive dressed. Facilities are provided for final grooming
OTHER FACILITY INFORMATION
Peace UMC is handicap accessible from the 9th Avenue entrance. Our parking lot is located on the west side of the church. On street parking is also available on 9th Avenue. Peace UMC is NOT air conditioned. We ask your courtesy in helping to keep the church complex clean and litter-free. Sometimes the bride and groom choose to greet people at the church after the service. The narthex (entry space between the front door and the sanctuary) and outside the front doors are appropriate places for greeting. There are no checkrooms or secure package storage areas in the sanctuary. Please discourage guests from bringing gift packages to the church. No child care services are available during weddings. Parents should make private, offsite babysitting arrangements for children whom they feel are too young to attend the wedding service. Peace UMC is a smoke-free environment, and alcoholic beverages are not permitted in the church or on the church grounds at any time.
Weddings are scheduled for both members and non-members. Reservations are made on a first come first served basis. Please contact us to select the date and time for the wedding.
