Congratulations on your upcoming marriage. We are pleased that you are considering Old Otterbein Church as the location for your service of worship and covenant. It is a sacred place for new beginnings. You do not have to be a United Methodist to be married at Old Otterbein.
However, we encourage you, if you do not have a church home, to spend some time in worship with us if possible, to better understand the foundations of this great church and get a sense of the honor that is placed on this biblical act called marriage.
An Invitation - You're invited to visit Old Otterbein and see for yourself, this beautiful sanctuary where many lives have been joined in marriage over the past two centuries. Thoughtful couples desire the reverence and beauty of the church for their wedding and Old Otterbein welcomes your inquiry into its use and more importantly, the development of a relationship with Christ's church.
Our Sanctuary - Our simple 1785 colonial sanctuary is perfect for the small or large wedding. With the balcony, the church can accommodate in excess of 240 attendees. Its high ceiling and plaian windows are set off with warm natural lighting and music from our one-of-a-kind pipe organ that is over 100 years old. Even with its openness, there is still an air of intimacy for small family group.
