To the Prospective Wedding Party

On behalf of the church family at Magnolia United Church of Christ, we rejoice with you in your wedding! We want to help you plan a memorable ceremony and reception to mark this sacred and joyous occasion.

We will work with you to make sure your wedding is as distinctive as you are. We invite you to attend worship and get to know us better. The better we know you, the better your wedding will be. Our wedding team looks forward to working with you. 

After you have checked with the Church Administrator at 206.283.1788 regarding available dates, the next step is to schedule a tour so you can get answers to all your questions.

I am very pleased to perform weddings. I will want to meet with you to get acquainted and to help you have a meaningful ceremony. If you wish to have a minister from another church participate in the ceremony, please let us know right away.

We can provide you all the information necessary to assure that the wedding and surrounding tasks run smoothly. We look forward to working with you both and assisting in making this a special and memorable time.


Rev. Joy R. Haertig
