Reserving a Room for Your Event

Scheduling Your Wedding

You are encouraged to schedule your wedding at Platte Woods United Methodist Church as far in advance of the ceremony as possible. For more information about scheduling your wedding, please contact the church office (816-741-2972). Please note that tentative wedding dates may be checked by telephone, however, actual arrangements must be completed and finalized in person. Upon receiving a $100.00 non-refundable deposit, our schedulers will reserve your wedding date on the church calendar. The check should be made out to PWUMC. You will be assigned a wedding coordinator who will help you with all necessary arrangements regarding charges and protocol for the rehearsal, ceremony and/or reception. Any changes and/or questions regarding your wedding plans should then be discussed with your assigned wedding coordinator. Your wedding coordinator will assist the pastor and your wedding party at the rehearsal and on your wedding day. For more information, complete the form below or contact our wedding coordinator.

Inclement Weather

In the event of inclement weather, PWUMC will follow the Park Hill School District’s lead. Changes in the church schedule, whether on weekends or during the week, can be found on this page, by tuning in to KMBC-9 TV, or on the church’s answering machine (741-2972). Every effort will be made to send e-mails notifying those on the E-News subscription list as well. Please note that only under the most extreme weather conditions will worship services be canceled. This applies to Sunbeams Preschool and Parents’ Day Out as well, including early dismissals.
