Wedding Guidelines

GUIDELINES FOR YOUR WEDDING

AT

SOUTHMINSTER PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

The marriage ceremony in the church is a worship service. All aspects of the ceremony, including the vows, music, prayers, readings, and decorations, are for the purpose of glorifying God in a reverent, joyous atmosphere. The pastors and staff of Southminster Presbyterian Church wish to assist you in making your wedding a meaningful and memorable experience.

SCHEDULING YOUR WEDDING

After reading through the policy, call the church office to check the availability of the desired date and to verify that you are on the church calendar. With this information verified the couple should complete their reservation form and return it with the deposit (nonmembers only) to secure their reservation. Upon receipt, the date for your wedding and your rehearsal will be officially scheduled. All scheduling is subject to the approval of a pastor of the church. Soon after receipt of the reservation form, the wedding coordinators will be in contact with you for a brief meeting. Under no circumstances should dates be announced or invitations ordered until this process is completed.
