Weddings in a Presbyterian church are not pageants but services of worship. One of the hallmarks of our Presbyterian tradition is simplicity in life and worship. As you plan for this joyous occasion, we at Second Presbyterian Church want to assist in every way possible to make your wedding a sacred and memorable event. The governing body of this church, the Session, has established certain rules and standards for the use of this church. You are urged to read this booklet carefully. When you meet with the appropriate officials of the church, they will be able to answer any questions you may have.
This resource piece is available to help those planning Memorial services think through some practical decisions and is not meant to be a substitute for planning a service with a pastor. Our prayer is that the church will be an expression of the compassionate and healing presence of the living Christ for those who are grieving.
