Weddings & Baptisms

Weddings at Marion Methodist and our New Facilities

The Pastors and Staff of our church are interested in your wedding because we believe that a Christian wedding is a covenant making ceremony in which the Bride and Groom not only Declare their love for one another, but affirm their Faith in Jesus Christ as Lord of their lives and of their marriage.

Pastor Mike Morgan and the rest of the staff are dedicated to assisting you in pre-marital counseling and in the planning and carrying out of your wedding.  This is all part of the larger family ministry, which is so important to us here at Marion First United Methodist Church. 

That being said, because of our plans to build a new church facility, it is important for all Brides and Grooms to clearly understand that between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018 we will be happy to perform your wedding ceremony wherever Marion Methodist Church is worshipping at the time of your wedding. 

We cannot be certain when we will no longer be using our current building at 8th Avenue and 12th Street.  And we cannot be certain as to when we will be moving into our new facility at Highway 13 and REC Drive.
