God bless you in your plans for marriage! St. Paul's Memorial UMC, an historic church built by Clem Studebaker of the famous Studebaker family of South Bend, welcome your inquiry into celebrating your marriage ceremony within our sacred walls. The richness of architecture and beauty of our sanctuary invite a rich environment for this solemn and sacred ceremony.
Joining your lives together in Holy Matrimony is a covenant established by two people in the presence of God and in the community of a Christian congregation. Because of the nature of your promise to each other in this Christian church, we invite you to consider making St. Paul's your church home and your church family..
Fill out the contact information below to inquire as to the availability. We try to accommodate everyone but our calendar fills fast because of the beautiful and historic Sanctuary. The traditional Methodist Wedding ceremony is used at St. Paul's. Substitutions will need to be discussed with the pastor. Three pre-marital sessions with the Pastor are required before the wedding ceremony can take place. The first one should be face-to-face but the remainder can be over Skype.
There is a $150.00 non-refundable deposit required to hold your date. Please download our Wedding-Fee Agreement to help you answer some basic questions regarding weddings at St. Paul's.
The sanctuary of St. Paul's is the place of choice for the wedding ceremony. However, if your wedding guest list is less than 35 people, our chapel is a lovely place in which to be married.
