Weddings are a unique time of celebration in our culture. It is incredible how much planning, preparation and effort can go into creating the “perfect” ceremony. Faith Chapel considers it a privilege to partner with you as you take this next step in your relationship. Marriage is important to God and to Faith Chapel. Our desire is to assist you in creating a deeply meaningful and beautiful ceremony.
Weddings aren’t only good to rejoice in the joining of two lives, but also to celebrate and remember the immaculate and perfect love Christ has for the Church.
Weddings can be a stressful time, and couples often feel pressure to impress and out-do everyone else. Please remember that the most essential part of the wedding is a bride and a groom making a covenant before God. In the midst of all of the planning and preparation, remember that your ceremony is, at its very core, a sacred moment with God. So, breathe deeply, relax and use our wedding guide booklet as a tool to help you as you prepare for your special day.
As you prepare for the logistical aspects of the wedding, make sure that you prepare your relationship as well by attending the Marriage Preparation Classes here at Faith Chapel. In the class we will cover multiple topics that are essential to the success of your marriage. You can find out when the next classes begin by contacting the church office.
The team of Pastors here at Faith Chapel is excited to serve you. As the process unfolds, you will be connected with a pastor who will walk you through the specific planning and preparation of your ceremony.
Finally, we know this isn’t just about a day – a party with family and friends – but a lifetime commitment. This isn’t just a wedding, but a marriage. Here are a few suggestions to help you start off right:
- Read John 2:1-11. This is the account of a couple who invited Jesus to their wedding and the extraordinary thing he did at their celebration. Prayerfully invite Jesus to be miraculously involved in your wedding.
- Sign up for the Marriage Preparation Class.
Excited for you,
Pastor Nate and Jenny
