MARRIAGE AND WEDDINGS
We are happy to welcome you to Park Presbyterian Church as you consider marriage. Marriage is a gift of God. A Christian marriage is a covenant a couple is called to live out together before God, throughout their lives of discipleship. In a service of Christian marriage a lifelong commitment is made by a couple to each other, publicly witnessed, acknowledged, and supported by the community.
A wedding is a service of worship and celebration before God. The focus of a wedding at Park Church will be giving God glory and thanks for the gift of love known in Jesus Christ and present in the couple presenting themselves before God and community. A wedding service will include Scripture reading with a brief meditation, prayers, as well as vows and blessing the couple.
In preparation for marriage the couple will spend time with the pastor to discuss the nature of their Christian commitment, their commitment as a couple, resources available to support Christian marriage, and the structure of the wedding service. The marriage service will be under the direction of the minister with the supervision of the session. Park Presbyterian Church looks forward to helping support, nurture, and encourage the couple in their future.
