The sanctuary provides a beautiful and holy place to perform your wedding ceremony. To request a wedding at Lakewood UMC we ask that you submit a Wedding Request form and return it to the church office or email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The form will then be given to the ministers and operations manager to approve of the request.
