Wedding at Westchester UMC

Celebrate your special day with us

 

In the United Methodist Church, the service of Christian marriage is not a sacrament.  


It is a sacred worship service where a vow of life-long love and care is shared with each other, with family and friends, in the presence of God. 
 
Westchester UMC has been a sacred home for family and friends since 1956.  
It was built on a lovely tree-lined street 
in a quiet neighborhood.    
 
Most couples are drawn to Westchester UMC because of the striking Sanctuary 
with a wide center aisle and the rich full sound of the organ.  


The dramatic stained-glass windows, 
loaded with colorful symbolism, add to the ambiance. 

We hope you will celebrate this special day  at Westchester United Methodist Church

It is a beautiful moment. A couple stands before a congregation of family and friends. They make lifelong promises to one another and maybe exchange rings. In a moment, their lives are changed. The two who have entered separately leave as one, joined together in marriage.

Christian marriage is not a sacrament in The United Methodist Church, but those who choose to marry enter into “a sacred covenant reflecting the Baptismal Covenant” (The United Methodist Book of Worship 115), and more specifically “a sacred covenant reflecting Christ’s covenant with the church” (The United Methodist Hymnal 864).

Baptism is our initiation into God’s covenant with us through Christ and marks the beginning of a lifetime of growing as follow...
