Wedding Guidelines and Policies

A couple desiring to be married by the pastor of either Yeagertown or Rhodes Memorial United Methodist church should be married in the church. Weddings may be held else-where upon the discretion of the pastor. At least one of the couple must be a baptized Christian.

The pastor should be contacted at least two months in advance and the couple will be required to undergo at least three counseling sessions with the pastor. The pastor may require more meetings.

Another pastor may not assist or may not officiate at a wedding at Yeagertown or Rhodes Memorial United Methodist Church without the knowledge and consent of the pastor. No organist, except our own or regular substitute may be use the organ without the permission of the church organist. Any organist must be proficient in the use of the organ and may be required to meet with the regular organist at her discretion. A key to the organ may be borrowed from the church office.
