Weddings at Asbury
Asbury United Methodist Church welcomes weddings of members, individuals with strong Asbury connections, and members of smaller United Methodist churches who need a bigger space for their wedding. Weddings at Asbury are officiated by one of our pastors on staff or, with permission from our Senior Pastor, an ordained elder of The United Methodist Church.
The Wedding Guidebook with fees is available in PDF format. Email Sharlynn Verner, Director of Communications, for the PDF at . Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Church Office at 913.432.5573.
It is with joy that we celebrate that same-gender marriage is now legal in the United States. At Asbury United Methodist Church, where "all means all," we want to minister to our entire congregation. We look forward to celebrating your special day with you! Our Senior Pastor and Associate Pastor both perform same-gender weddings here at Asbury. Please contact the church office at 913.432.5573 if you'd like to set up a meeting with them prior to looking at available wedding dates.
