Weddings

It is the Pastor’s policy not to perform a marriage within 6 months of notification. This is done to maintain his existing planning and personal schedule. Marriage should be planned well in advance. Jumping into marriage is not wise. Planning your marriage and seeking marriage counseling is highly recommended by the Pastor.

Marriage is too sacred and too holy, to be rushed into. It is the Pastor’s wish that persons understand God’s requirements of marriage before entering into the bond of matrimony.

A minimum of six (6) counseling sessions (12 hours) for all members and nonmembers prior to performing a marriage ceremony is required. The pastor provides counseling only if he officiates the wedding ceremony. He is certified and will administer the Taylor-Johnson Temperament Analysis (T-JTA) - a diagnostic device to identify individual strengths as well as areas of needed improvement, as one of his counseling tools.

RESTRICTIONS
• No food or drink is allowed outside the fellowship hall.
• Dripless candles will be used at all times (no exceptions).
