Planning the Ceremony
A wedding at First Congregational is first and foremost a service of worship, celebrating the presence of God and asking for God’s blessing on the sacred union. Our pastors are happy to extend hospitality to interfaith, inter-religious, and ecumenical couples and will work with you to accommodate your needs, including having a guest officiant helping to conduct the ceremony. Our standard clergy fee would still apply.
We anticipate that all couples will meet with a pastor for premarital counseling. One of our pastors will meet with you to discuss your expectations, hopes, fears, and values. This will also give the pastor a chance to get to know you and help plan a ceremony that is personal and meaningful to you. Virtual meetings are available for people who live out-of-town.
We will provide a Wedding Advisor to help coordinate logistics at the church before and on your rehearsal/wedding day.
