Services of Christian Marriage can be performed at Creekwood UMC. Creekwood is open to both members and non-members. Our sanctuary capacity is approximately 600.

A wedding in the Christian setting is a special event in that it is a service of worship. It is the desire of Creekwood United Methodist Church (CUMC) to make every wedding a beautiful, meaningful worship event for each couple who marries within our church.

Parties contemplating marriage should contact the church as early as possible to scheduling a wedding. It is our preference that clergy of the United Methodist Church perform the ceremony; however, guest clergy may officiate or co-officiate with approval from the clergy staff of CUMC.

Pre-wedding Counseling

All couples who schedule weddings at CUMC must participate in at least three (3) pre-marital counseling sessions with a CUMC pastor.
