We rejoice in the opportunity to share the blessings of holy matrimony with you. Whether your sacred occasion will include 20 or 200 people, we provide Christian marriage ceremonies in the Methodist tradition for couples desiring such a ceremony. While church membership in any denomination is not required in order to be married at Sparks UMC, it is important that participants have a sincere desire to acknowledge the sacred covenant of Christian marriage.
Weddings are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis pending availability of our facility and/or pastor and staff. We recommend you schedule your wedding at least three months in advance; six months or more is ideal. Please view our Weddings page for more detailed information, and contact our office at 775-358-0925 so that we can begin planning for your needs as quickly as possible.
Funerals and Memorial Services
When a family member or close friend dies, you are often faced with many decisions. Our staff and dedicated volunteers are available to help you and your family during this difficult time. We do not charge any fees for funerals or memorial services.
Our pastor will work with you and your family to determine how to honor the life of your loved one. Funerals can occur in the our sanctuary, our park, a funeral home, or another location of your choice.
