You Are Welcome to Have Your Wedding at Newport UMC! Attending worship at Newport United Methodist Church is not a requirement for having your wedding here. The Church is NOT available for Saturday weddings due to the weekly use of the building by another congregation. The sanctuary seats approximately 250 with additional space that can be opened to accomodate more guests.
At the Grand River Center, we take pride in our weddings. Our goal is to create an intimate atmosphere and serve the finest cuisine while your guests enjoy the scenic Mississippi River. Whether you’re enjoying cocktails on the patio or dancing in our spacious ballroom, the beauty is inescapable.
The first thing you should know is that the Little Brown Church is actually a church, we are not a wedding chapel. A wedding at our church is considered a spiritual service performed by our pastor and will be set within the context of the Christian faith.
