The essence of marriage is a covenanted commitment that has its foundation in the faithfulness of God’s love. The marriage ceremony is the glad occasion on which two people unite in the mutual exchange of covenant promises. The pastor acts as an official representative of the church and gives the marriage the church’s blessing. The congregation joins in affirming the marriage and in offering support and thanksgiving for the new family.
While we perform weddings at First Congregational Church for members and non-members alike, we strongly urge all couples to find a community of faith in which their relationship with one another may be strengthened and supported.
If you have an interest in getting married at First Congregational Church, please contact the office and we will be happy to help you with the next steps.
