Weddings

STEP 2 - WEDDING COORDINATOR

The Church requires that the bride and groom designate one person who will serve as their Wedding Coordinator. The Wedding Coordinator will facilitate wedding plans on behalf of the bridal party. It is the Wedding Coordinator's responsibility to verify with the Church office the minister who will be officiating the ceremony. On the day of the ceremony, the Wedding Coordinator must arrange for license signing by the minister and two witnesses no later than fifteen minutes before the ceremony is to begin.

STEP 3 - CHURCH TRADITION

Marriage officiants must be approved by the Pastor. The Pastor's office will verify that he will perform a particular wedding ceremony.

Note: Scheduling church facilities for a wedding do not automatically mean that the Pastor will perform the wedding ceremony. The Pastor must specifically agree to perform a wedding even though the chapel is made available. Expect that the Pastor will officiate in a marriage ceremony when specific arrangements are made.

  • Wedding rehearsals will only be held the day prior to the wedding date from 5:00pm until 7:00pm.
