"Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity."
Colossians 3:12-14 (NIV)
Blessings on your upcoming marriage!
We believe the union of husband and wife in marriage was part of God’s good design in creation. God intends marriage for mutual joy, and for the building and nurturing up of the couple as well as for the benefit of the community around them. And, should it be God’s will, it is where children are born, nurtured, and their own faith is fostered as well.
No one ever fully knows what they are getting into when they get married—but we want to provide tools for you, as best we can, for this lifelong commitment. If you’re planning a wedding which a minister at the church will officiate, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can schedule pre-marital counseling as part of the planning process.
Such counseling aims to help the couple come to mutual and shared understanding of strengths and weaknesses, stressors, shared goals, and learn how marriage connects with their faith.
In order help the process of any receptions, wedding ceremonies, and rehearsals at the church, we ask that you contact the church office, or a pastor on staff by phone or by e-mail to confirm any use of the church building.
If you are seeking information on building rental for events, please see our building use section.
