We are delighted that you are considering The Village Church for your wedding. The ceremony that unites two people in Christian marriage is predicated upon the desire and intention of the prospective bride and groom to have a Christian marriage celebrated in the context of a worship service.
A Christian marriage means that at least one of the partners shall be a professing Christian and that ordinarily both of them will share a common Christian faith. While they need not be members of The Village Church, nor of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) it is hoped that their profession of Christ as Savior and Lord will have or will soon come to have expression by membership in some communion within the Christian community.
As professing Christians, they will understand marriage as a relationship between a man and a woman, ordained by God and not merely a human contrivance. As a divine ordinance, they will acknowledge that marriage is regulated by the commandments of God to love one another in faithfulness as long as they both shall live. Having sought as Christians to know the will of God for their lives in this joyous relationship, couples shall have the assurance that they have been led together by His Providence. With these convictions, they come before Him in the Wedding Service to seek His blessing upon the relationship into which He has called them.
**Persons who have been divorced are fully welcomed to enter a new marriage covenant as a sign of their faith in God who redeems our losses or failures and creates “new wineskins” to contain the new life he works within us.

Please make an appointment to meet with one of the Pastors. It is very important for both the bride and groom to meet with a Pastor before the wedding date is confirmed.
