How Much Does it Cost?
What is Marriage
We consider it an honor and privilege to share in this most significant chapter of your lives as you approach your wedding day and begin the first year of the wonderful adventure of marriage. Our hope is to provide you with strong support as you commit yourself to a lifetime together in Christian marriage. Therefore, it is our polity that weddings are conducted under the direction of one of our pastors. If you have a preference for a particular pastor, your request will be honored, if possible. We have been able to honor requests for guest pastors to participate and invite you to discuss this with the officiating pastor at your first meeting. During the months leading up to your ceremony, several meetings will occur in order for you and the pastor to discuss Christian marriage (the joys and responsibilities) and to finalize details regarding your wedding ceremony.
