Weddings

In selecting Asbury First, you are choosing a Christian service and asking for God's blessing upon your decision to be united in marriage. We are honored and pleased to share in your wedding plans. We want to help you make this special day as meaningful and significant as possible.
 The United Methodist Church ritual for the celebration of marriage may be followed or modified to meet your own preferences. It is also possible to write a service which is uniquely your own. 
In selecting a pastor to officiate, you may request any of our pastoral staff. This request will be honored if that pastor is available.
 We invite you to make church attendance and participation in church programs part of your marriage lifestyle and relationship. Church affiliation by a couple can deeply enhance a marriage.
  A wedding manual, with fee structure for members and non-members, is available in the church office. To find out more about music that may be played at your wedding, please check out our Wedding Music page.

Memorial Services

United Methodist teaching on death is grounded in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments and grows out of reflection on those sacred texts. At the heart of that teaching is God who is life and gives life. United Methodists recognize a living tradition of interpretation of the experience and meaning of death, and we seek to bring thoughtful consideration of engagement with Scripture, tradition, experience, and reason.
 If you are a member of Asbury First and wish to talk to a pastor about holding a memorial service, please call Melody Guadagnino in the church office (585) 271-1050 x103 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
