The service of marriage is a sacred service in The United Methodist Church. The marriage service is one of joy, blessing and commitment. We conduct marriage services for the glory of God and to offer the grace and power of Christ to those who are being married. This policy has been prepared to guide and assist you in planning a meaningful ceremony.
Members will include the following: A "member" means the bride or groom, parents or grandparents of the bride or groom, or children of the bride or groom. In addition it shall be a person, parent or grandparent who is regular in living out their membership vows and “expectations” of church membership. A member is a person who has been active one year prior to the wedding.
Teresa, the Office Manager will assist you in setting the date and time for your wedding. You can contact her at 402-393-1015. No date will be put on the Church calendar until you have talked to her and a (nonrefundable) deposit of $100 has been received. Once the date is agreed upon and deposit has been received the date will be put on the Church calendar, and your first counseling session with the pastor will be set. This date will remain firm unless changed by the couple in consultation with the pastor.
No weddings will be scheduled after 6:00 p.m. You can gain access to the church up to 3 hours prior to the scheduled wedding time. For example, if the wedding is schedule to begin at 6 pm the earliest you can access the church for any deliveries is 3PM. The bridal party must not be in the building after 8:00 p.m.
