The Christian wedding is a celebration of a couple’s love and commitment to each other and God.
This sacred ceremony, in which you enter into a covenant with God and one another, creates the foundation for your marriage. By choosing to be married by a representative of God’s Church, you are inviting God’s presence into your wedding and purposely asking for God’s blessing upon the marriage.
Pasadena Community Church, A United Methodist Church, is honored to offer the Wedding Ministry for the very special occasion of holy marriage. Weddings are available for both our members and non-members of the congregation. The wedding ceremony is a worship service where the couple pledges themselves to one another in the presence of God and begins their marriage with Christ as the foundation. The following policies and procedures have been established to help your wedding go as smoothly as possible.
We are pleased you have chosen our facilities for your wedding. Your wedding is one of the most important events in your life and in order to facilitate the wedding ceremony itself, the following guidelines have been established.
We will do everything we can to assist you in making your wedding as beautiful, meaningful, and sacred as possible. A wedding service is an act of worship and all that takes place within the ceremony should contribute to the sense of worship for all who are participating and attending this sacred occasion.
Weddings require careful planning, and the more time you can allow, the better. We recommend that you start planning a minimum of three in advance.
We do not schedule weddings on holidays/holiday weekends. There are several weeks during the year where we may not be able to accommodate weddings due to Church activities, especially during Easter and Christmas seasons.
