Weddings












Our beautiful sanctuary has been the site for many weddings since
it was built.

While the appearance of our building is the major reason people choose First Baptist Church of Ypsilanti for their wedding, getting married at our church is a beautiful experience for many reasons.

First Baptist Church welcomes you in planning a wedding here. This is an important outreach ministry of our church, which seeks to extend the Grace and Love of God to you. We invite couples seeking a Christian ceremony to have their ceremony in the sacred beauty of our building. 

Policies
The FBCY policy is that no drugs, alcoholic beverages, or smoking are permitted on church property. This includes any ceremonial wedding champagne for toasts, etc. Violation of this policy will result in the cancellation of the wedding service.

We are happy to make available a booklet outlining in detail all of the policies regarding a wedding at First Baptist Church. It is advised that this be read in full before scheduling your wedding to avoid any misunderstandings regarding FBCY policy. For your copy, please contact the Church Administrator or the Pastor.

Cost
The church charges a nominal fee for members.  The Pastor does not charge a fee for his Pastoral counseling services or to perform the wedding itself to members of the congregation. However, if a member chooses to give a financial gift, it will be gladly appreciated.

For Non-Members, the cost of the wedding will vary depending on the size of the wedding, usage of the fellowship hall for rehearsal dinner and wedding reception, needing the
church to provide a pianist or organist, etc, etc, etc. The fee for the pre-marital counseling and the cost to perform the wedding ceremony itself will be negotiated between the couple and the Pastor.  ​​
