The Meaning of Marriage
We are pleased that you desire to be married in a service of Christian worship. The church is here to minister to the people and we consider it a great honor and a sacred trust to share in this important event in your lives.
A wedding in the church is a service of worship, therefore, everything in the service should be done to honor God, and to be a blessing for you, your families, friends and guests. When we gather for a wedding we regard every marriage to be a gift of God, given for the well-being of a particular couple, as well as the entire human family.
Marriage is a covenant relationship through which a man and a woman are called to live out their lives together as disciples of Jesus Christ. The wedding ceremony is thus: the beginning of such a new relationship between a husband and a wife, lived actively and intentionally in the presence of God. Preparation for a wedding includes conversations with the Pastor regarding the meaning and purpose of marriage and the planning of the details of the wedding service itself. It is important that at least four premarital conversations take place over a period of at least three months. This will allow the couple and the pastor to get to know each other better. In order to fulfill our commitment to you and help you have a very meaningful wedding service, we have developed some guidelines which we want to share with youin this booklet. It is our earnest hope and desire that you will be glad for the ministry of Covenant Presbyterian Church now and in the days and years to come.Full Wedding Policy, Fees, and Application
