PVUMC (Paradise Valley United Methodist Church) offers a place of belonging to a multi-generational, diverse community of individuals interested in bettering our world. More than a Sunday morning experience, we are people seeking to nurture a deeper spirituality through life-giving practices. Centered in God’s love, we act authentically and generously through our connections at church and in service to the community. Our vision is to be a diverse, inclusive, and spiritually thriving congregation committed to being God’s Love in Action. We exist to serve and not to be served.
There are many times when our facilities are not used to capacity by church-related groups, so in the spirit of Christian service and stewardship, we will occasionally make these facilities available to non-profit groups who offer a redeeming service to our community and to for-profit groups who are of assistance to the church in carrying out its ministry.
Our building environment needs to be safe, healthful, and exemplary. Smoking, tobacco products of any kind, vaping, alcohol, and drugs are prohibited in any area of the church campus. Only Service animals are allowed on campus unless otherwise specified or for unique events.
If you are interested in renting our facility for a meeting, corporate/club dinner, concert please complete the rental request form.
A wedding is a special event in a couple’s life. We celebrate and take great joy in this occasion. We strive to establish a relationship with each couple because you are special in God’s eyes and in our eyes, as well. We want to provide you with a sacred ceremony that is joyful, reverent, and memorable.
Paradise Valley United Methodist Church offers two indoor locations for your ceremony. Our Chapel is available for smaller, more intimate ceremonies and our Sanctuary is available for traditional and larger ceremonies that may want to include music from our pipe organ. Some couples, like the one pictured here, have photos taken in our Biblical Garden following their indoor wedding.
Your wedding service will be consistent with the ritual of the United Methodist Church, conducted by one of our Paradise Valley United Methodist Church ministers in consultation with you. In addition, every couple will enjoy a time of pre-marital counseling with our clergy. We’ll do all we can to assure your wedding day and your life together are everything you hope they will be.
Wedding services at PVUMC are not restricted to its members and are available (subject to clergy availability) to all who desire a sacred ceremony that emphasizes Christian marriage. Each wedding service is conducted as a sacred experience with reverence and professional care.
