A Christian ceremony of marriage is a covenant undertaken in the sight of God. This is quite different from a civil ceremony. The intent to establish a home based on love, commitment, and Christian principles is the beginning of a joyous life adventure.

Walnut Creek United Methodist Church would be delighted to assist you in making your Wedding day a memorable occasion.

This site contains an overview of the services and requirements to be married at our Church. Our Wedding Coordinators will be delighted to meet with you to answer your questions and provide a personal tour of the facility.

The Pastor will be available to meet with you to discuss the forms the ceremony can take and to set a schedule of appointments for pre-marital counseling.

Please contact our Church Office on (925) 934-4208 to have your call returned by a Wedding Coordinator.

Congratulations on your upcoming Wedding and may God’s love support you through the coming years.
