CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR ENGAGEMENT AND PLANS TO BE MARRIED!
At Immanuel, we are committed to Godís design for marriage as described in the Bible. We believe a church wedding is a joyful experience of Christian worship in which the service of Holy Matrimony is conducted in an atmosphere of reverence for God.
We believe that marriage is a sacred covenant relationship, between a man and a woman, designed and ordained by God from the creation of the world, and its significance is emphasized repeatedly in Scripture (e.g. Genesis 1:26-28, 2:18, 21-24). In illustrating the deep relationship of Christ with His bride, the Church, God also chose the analogy of the marriage relationship (Ephesians 5).
In light of the biblical significance and responsibilities intended by God for marriage, it is essential that the church take seriously its participation in a marriage, as well as its responsibility in helping couples in preparation. We are glad you are considering Immanuel as a place for your wedding ceremony. As a first step, please download and read our Handbook of Wedding Policies.
We believe the principles in this handbook are consistent with Godís Word, and they reflect the high standard to which God will hold a man and woman as they commit themselves to one another in marriage. Any couple who wishes to be married at Immanuel must carefully read, and agree to all the terms and conditions of this wedding policy in order to use our facilities and / or pastoral staff for your wedding.
