Marriage is a gift God has given to all humankind for the well-being of the entire human family. Marriage involves a unique commitment between two people, traditionally a man and a woman, to love and support each other for the rest of their lives. The sacrificial love that unites the couple sustains them as faithful and responsible members of the church and the wider community.

Congratulations on your upcoming marriage. The desire of First Presbyterian Church is to celebrate this God-given gift in a service of worship that is appropriate for this life-shaping commitment.
The most important thing to remember is that a Service of Christian Marriage is essentially a worship experience in which sacred vows are exchanged by two people who are making a life-time commitment to each other. Because a wedding in the church is an act of worship, the rules governing the conduct of worship always take precedence over varied social considerations.
