Wedding Ministry

Wedding Ministry

Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding! Thank you for thinking of First United Methodist Church of El Dorado, Kansas as part of your plans.

Your wedding is the Christian celebration of your love and commitment to each other and to God. At First United Methodist Church, we want to minister to you, through your wedding service. This sacred ceremony, in which you enter into a covenant with God and one other, creates the foundation for your marriage. By choosing to use a representative of God, and God’s Church, you are inviting God’s presence in your wedding and purposely asking for God’s blessing upon the marriage.

Most weddings at First United Church are held in the Sanctuary. This historic facility seats approximately 450 guests with 18 pews on each side of the sanctuary on the main level. With beautiful stained glass, long center aisle and domed ceiling, the Sanctuary provides the perfect backdrop for your wedding ceremony.

The Wedding Ministry at First United Methodist Church is available for members and non-members.

Pastor Andrew is also available for off-site weddings.

The fee for a wedding in the sanctuary is $500 for both members and non-members. Need-based reduction of fees is available, contact Pastor Andrew.
