Dates and times for all weddings and rehearsals must first clear the church calendar. Contact the church office to confirm availability of our facilities
(724-330-5350; firstname.lastname@example.org). It is preferable that the date be scheduled months in advance and should be confirmed with the church office before you book your reception venue.
The marriage license and all fees should be in the church office at least 2 weeks before the wedding date. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania will recognize a marriage as legal when performed under a valid marriage license duly issued by the Clerk of the Orphan’s Court. A license is valid for sixty (60) days from the date it is issued.
The traditional Ritual of Marriage of the United Methodist Church will be used in the wedding ceremony celebrating the covenant of Christian marriage. The officiating clergy person will provide pre-marriage counseling, direct the rehearsal, lead the wedding ceremony and make sure all legal paperwork is completed. Most weddings will require a rehearsal. The date and hour will be set in consultation with the approval of the officiating clergy person. If you are having a rehearsal dinner, to help in your planning, please note that rehearsals are approximately one hour in length.
