Congratulations, we wish you well as you begin
your journey into married life!
In this section you will find a number of resources
that will help you with planning your special day.
Below are many of the common questions we get
asked about weddings.
What do Christians believe about marriage?
Christians believe that marriage is a gift from God. In the marriage ceremony, a
couple makes a public declaration of lifelong commitment to love each other, come what may.
I’m not Methodist. I don’t go to church. Can I still get married in church?
Yes! However, it is important to realize that a wedding service IS a worship service. To be married in a church is to acknowledge that God is an active part of our marriage, and it is also an opportunity for all who witness this marriage to realize that the love God gives for husband and wife is a love that is available to all.
How do I book the church?
Contact us at 330.455.0153 to see if your selected date is available.
We will wish to meet with you in person to discuss your plans.
I'm divorced. Can I still get married in church?
Yes! We do require that all people entering marriage go through professional counseling through the church. This is especially important for persons who have suffered divorce and want to enter into a new marriage.
Why do we need marriage counseling?
You have probably invested a lot of time planning your wedding. The day is important but your marriage should last for the rest of your life. However much you think you know each other, you are still two separate individuals with different backgrounds, personalities, experiences, hopes and fears. We offer professional pre-marriage counseling to discuss important issues your marriage will face.
How much will it cost?
For a full wedding at Crossroads UMC the fee is $1500, and this is all-inclusive of pastor, organist, facility rental, custodians, security, counseling services, sound/lighting/computer/video technicians, wedding consultant, candles, bulletins and rehearsal schedule.
Reduced rates are available for smaller weddings held in the chapel.
