A Word to the Bride and Groom: Congratulations on your engagement! We are delighted you are considering the First United Methodist Church of Troy for your wedding. We believe that sharing with couples as they bind their lives together in the Spirit of Christ is a very special ministry of the Church. Troy First views the marriage ceremony as a worship service and celebrates this sacred event for members and non-members alike. Couples may be married in a variety of settings, including our Sanctuary or our Chapel, and you will see from the following pages we offer a flexible approach to meet your interests and customize your wedding. I would like to meet with you as the first step to discuss the wedding service and your ideas and also set up consultation appointments. The purpose of this information is to help you plan for a wedding which will be an expression of your faith, a witness of your love for each other, and a time of deep commitment. It is the result of years of experience and hours of thoughtful preparation in developing guidelines which will create a worshipful, joyful atmosphere for your wedding. We look forward to working with you to make your wedding a memorable day, to share this experience with you and to nurture your upcoming marriage.
Grace and peace to you, Rev. Weatherly Verhelst
