The services of the Church Wedding Coordinator are required for all weddings taking place at Faith United Methodist Church. It is the job of the Wedding Coordinator to represent our church on your special day. The Coordinator is familiar with and has access to the facilities and equipment necessary to make your wedding run smoothly. If you are working with a wedding planner to help with your reception, photography, flowers & etc., Faith’s Wedding Coordinator will be happy to work with him or her. Please do not hesitate to call her or email her at any time. She is here to ensure that your wedding day is very special!

Scheduling your Wedding

Once the Wedding Coordinator has cleared the desired ceremony date, a meeting will be scheduled with the bride & groom to complete the Church Use and Wedding Applications. A security deposit of $100.00 is collected at the time of application.
Weddings are scheduled on Saturdays only. While we do not dictate a specific time for the start of your ceremony, we do require that it begin no earlier than 11:00 am and no later than 4:00 pm.
