Thank you for considering First United Methodist Church as the location for your union service! A union is a sacred event and any service here is seen as a worship service first and foremost. In order to adequately prepare for your union, the pastor at FUMC requests a minimum of four months advance notice.
The flat rate fee ($1,500 for the sanctuary, $1,000 for the chapel) includes the Pastor’s Honorarium, Organist Services, and Maintenance Crew for both the rehearsal and the service. If a reception is to be held on church premises, a separate request form and fee will be required.
The pastor of First United Methodist Church (FUMC) will officiate at your wedding/union service. If you have friends or relatives who are clergy, they may co-officiate the service with the permission of the pastor of FUMC. If outside clergy are invited, the couple will be responsible for additional honorarium for those persons.
