Your Wedding at Camarillo United Methodist Church
This is a time for joy and also a time to reflect upon the direction and purpose of your life together. Our Senior Minister will be a part of your wedding; an appointment will be set for you to meet with him to discuss your service. All attention will be given to assure a ceremony of reverence, dignity, and beauty.
The minister and congregation of Camarillo United Methodist Church hope that your life together will be full of joy, and the home which you are establishing will abide in peace. If you reside in this community and do not have a church, there is a place for you at Camarillo UMC.
