ABOUT A CHURCH WEDDING
The wedding ceremony in a church is a service of worship. The people who gather do so to worship God, and in the process, give witness to marriage. Christian marriage finds its unique meaning in the fact that it is patterned after the covenant relationship which God has established with the church. God has promised to love the church in joy and in sorrow, in plenty and in want, in sickness and in health. In Christian marriage you will promise before God to do the same for one another.

SCHEDULING A WEDDING
Tentative dates may be cleared by telephone, but a reservation will not be confirmed until a deposit has been received in the church office, along with the Wedding Contract. No announcements should be made until dates are confirmed and fixed on the church calendar. The exact hours of the wedding and rehearsal should be fixed at the time the tentative reservation is made. Weddings are not scheduled during Holy Week. Other times and dates may not be appropriate, so early consultation with a pastor is essential. Weddings are booked on a first come first served basis, with a minimum of four hours required between weddings scheduled on the same day. Because we have a Saturday evening service, the latest possible wedding time on a Saturday is 2:00pm. We offer livestream services so that family and friends not attending in-person can virtually witness your big day.
