Wedding Sanctuary

Congratulations & Welcome! 
First UMC Jackson is the premier location for a Christian wedding in Jackson. The sanctuary, which seats up to 700, is available for large or small ceremonies. This is also the home of southern Michigan's finest organ, the Martin Ott Pipe Organ - Opus 97. The church has skilled organists who will work with you to provide the music that will enhance your special day. For more intimate weddings, there is a Chapel which seats 50 - 75. Whatever your vision, our wedding coordinator can help you make that dream come true.

The church also has excellent facilities available for non-alcoholic receptions with seating up to 200. To see the sanctuary and hear the organ, please feel free to come for a Sunday morning service at 8:30 or 11:00am (10:00am in July and August). For more information or to tour the church, contact Dawn Doerr weekdays from 8:00am until 4:00pm (Monday - Thursday) or 8:00am until 12:00pm (Friday). Reserve your date today! Your promise to each other is important to First UMC Jackson!


Wedding Coordinator

Our Wedding Coordinator will work with each wedding couple. She will meet with you after you have reserved the church. She will go over all the details to make sure your wedding goes as smooth as possible. As your wedding draws closer, you will meet with her again to finalize all last minute details. She will be at the rehearsal and the wedding to oversee details so everything goes according to plan. Any questions that arise in your planning should be directed to her.
