We love hosting weddings!!
It is the joy and privilege of the church to witness some of the happiest days of people's lives. Hands down, weddings and baptisms are our favorite! Whether you are a long-time member of the church family or are looking for a romantic place to have a destination ceremony, we would be delighted to open our doors for you.
Our sanctuary can comfortable seat about 180 people and our chapel can seat about 50 for a more intimate setting. We are just a city block from the picturesque waterfront, the Saugatuck Center of the Arts - a popular reception location, plenty of wonderful restaurants for the rehearsal dinners, beautiful rental properties and we have plenty of parking nearby (something that can be hard to come by in Saugatuck).
Pastor Sarah, and our Wedding Coordinator Pat Gentry, look forward to working with you to make your wedding day unique, meaningful and smooth sailing!
We work hard to make sure it is simple to reserve your wedding date:
Step 1: Contact the church office to check availability: 269-857-2929 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 2: The Trustees (they care for our building and grounds) need you to fill out a couple of forms, available here: Weddings. Fill them out and email or snail mail a copy to the church with the security deposit of $100. The Trustees will approve your wedding date request- this is just a formality to prevent calendar traffic jams.
Step 3: Then that’s it! Your date is reserved.
The First Congregational Church of Saugatuck is committed to walking beside couples of all varieties and styles, regardless of race, faith background, ability or sexual orientation. We are delighted to offer pre-marital counseling services and a beautiful facility to use for all couples. Our pastor and church community will treat you all with the upmost dignity, respect and regard.
You are welcome here.
