Weddings & Holy Unions

Getting Married? Why not get married at the church that started it all?

Founders Metropolitan Community Church Los Angeles was the first church in the nation to perform same-sex holy unions more than forty years ago.

Today we are happy to officiate weddings for same-sex and opposite-sex couples at our facility or offsite.

Here are some answers to some important questions:

Our Location

Our Facilities

Our warm, inviting, and full air-conditioned sanctuary seats 350 guests comfortably. A separate Chapel accommodates 50 guests comfortably.
