1. Do you do non-member weddings?      Yes

2. What are the wedding fees?
     See Wedding Information Sheet or contact the Church Office for fees
     Member fees pay for: Custodian, Pastor, Wedding Coordinator & Organist    
     Non-member fees pay for: Sanctuary, Custodian, Pastor, Wedding Coordinator & Organist

Fellowship Hall is available if Reception is held at the church
 
Notes:  
  • Members already support the church through their regular giving and receive the service of the pastor at a reduced fee and do not pay a Sanctuary fee.  
  • Children of members qualify for member fees.  Grandchildren of members who are not members of the church are considered non-members.  
  • There is an Organist available for additional practice with vocalist.
  • All fees are due paid in full two weeks before rehearsal begins.


3.  How do I arrange for a wedding to be held at KPUMC?
    A wedding application is filled out by the couple accompanied by a check made out to “Kenwood Park UMC” for a deposit.  

    After the couple has
        completed a wedding application,
        paid deposit,
        met with the pastor,
        and the deposit check clears the bank,
    the wedding is then put on the church calendar and the date is held.

    The deposit is applied towards the wedding fees.  
    
    If the couple cancels the wedding with less than a 30 day notice prior to the wedding date,
    the deposit is non-refundable, however, the other fees already paid are refundable.    

4. Do we have to use the Wedding Coordinator?  
    Yes, the Wedding Coordinator works with all the weddings held at KPUMC.
    
    If the wedding is very small (wedding party and guests are less than 15 people),
    the couple may ask the pastor for an exception to be made.

5. What does the pastor require?
    The couple meets with the pastor, generally for three one-hour appointments.
    In these appointments:
        The pastor has an opportunity to get to know the couple.
        The wedding ceremony is planned.
        The wedding vows are selected or written by the couple.
        Potential areas of conflict for married couples are reviewed.
        Some couples ask for additional appointments, and those are available.
