First Congregational UCC, Battle Creek, Michigan


Weddings are the celebration of a spiritual commitment. Here at First Congregational Church, we regularly have weddings in our beautiful courtyard, our chapel and our domed sanctuary settings. As an Open and Affirming church, we are proud to provide weddings for all couples.


First Congregational Church Weddings
Both Rev. Tom Ott and Rev. Tom Ryberg officiate weddings both at the church and other locations. They both take time to get to know the couple prior to the wedding through pre-martial sessions in which the spiritual commitment of marriage and its practical implications are discuss. Both pastors require 3 pre-marital sessions.
The Sanctuary seats up to 300 people. The Miller Chapel seats up to 150. The Courtyard and kitchen accommodate a reception of up to 150 people. For more information about pricing, policies and other information, download information below. Members should contact the Church Office directly to get information on member pricing.
