Weddings or the Service of Holy Matrimony is the sacrament between two people who share their love and come to the church seeking God’s blessing on their lives. The clergy meet with the couple at least four times, either in person if they can, or via Facetime, if they are out of the area. The purpose of these conversations is to explore their relationship, share teachings of the church regarding marriage, and plan the service. If one or both individuals have been divorced, it is necessary to seek the permission of the bishop to proceed with the service. Since the Church of the Messiah is located in a prime spot for weddings, it is necessary to schedule the ceremony as early as possible. For further information about weddings and/or to get a fee schedule for this service, please call the church office.
