Weddings

Your Wedding

We are excited that you are thinking of having your wedding in our beautiful sanctuary or our Tree of Life Chapel. Either venue provides an inspirational and serene setting in which you as a couple make a commitment before God, family, and friends to begin your life together.

Your wedding ceremony will be a worship service in which God’s blessing and presence in your life together is joyfully acknowledged and your commitment to each other is celebrated.

Marriage brings significant changes in your lives and marks the beginning of a new spiritual adventure. The pastor who performs the ceremony will counsel with you prior to the rehearsal. These sessions will help you to prepare yourselves for marriage as well as choose the type of Christian ceremony you desire. May God’s richest blessings be known to you as you prepare for this most meaningful event in your lives.

The Ceremony

Your church wedding is a service of worship. The ceremony, under the sole direction of the minister, will seek to express reverence and joy.

A brief outline of the ceremony is as follows: the wedding party processes to the front of the church; a brief statement on the meaning of Christian marriage; prayers and readings will be offered; exchange vows with one another; rings may be exchanged; the minister will declare that the couple are now joined in marriage; conclude with a benediction.
