Getting Married at First Church

Located in the heart of historic Methuen, Massachusetts, First Church Congregational is where we joyfully marry couples of all ages, from all cultures, races and sexual orientations. The use of our lovely sanctuary is available to both members and non-members and we would be honored to have you celebrate your wedding in our church.

 

Your marriage is a unique and exciting moment in your life. We recognize the changing social and family customs in our transitory society and welcome all people who wish to be married. We offer a historic sacred space, a caring and professional staff, and a vibrant and loving community.

 

Imagine your wedding in the beautiful and historic First Church sanctuary.

 

 

Our sanctuary, built in 1796 features a traditionally elegant atmosphere complete with spectacular stained glass windows, a vaulted ceiling and rich dark woods throughout. It seats up to 400 guests, although a gathering of 75 or more does not feel lost in the setting.

 

First Church is home of the beautiful “Resurrection Window” by the artist, John LaFarge.  Fashioned of opalescent glass, this window is well known for its special beauty.  The apse was designed by the artist’s son to complement the window.

The 1866 James E. Treat pipe organ was built for E. Searle’s Great Barrington, MA residence and relocated to the church in 1924.  The case and console are constructed of solid, carved English oak.  The organ contains 40 ranks of pipes distributed over three manuals (keyboards) and pedal.

First Church, because of it’s historical significance and unique gothic architecture, is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
