Weddings

At Covenant, our ministers and staff want your wedding to be a holy and happy event that you and your families will cherish and find meaningful. We welcome the opportunity to join you in your plan to establish a Christian home, and we hope your wedding day will be a joyful beginning of that commitment.

Weddings at Covenant Presbyterian Church are reserved for members of Covenant or those who have a substantive relationship with this congregation as demonstrated through attendance, participation, giving and service. Weddings are one dimension of a comprehensive ministry at Covenant and are understood to be for those who participate in our larger mission as a congregation. Subject to denominational guidance (see current guidance here) and applicable law, the Wedding Committee and the Session will exercise their discretion in applying this policy, but in doing so will not consider race, color, national origin, age, sex, sexual orientation, disability or other similar characteristics.

As with our other worship services, weddings at Covenant are an opportunity to glorify God. Covenant maintains guidelines regarding decorations, music and photography (still and video), which are outlined in a booklet given to you by the wedding coordinator. A Covenant minister, music director and wedding director will help plan your wedding.

Covenant does not schedule weddings on Sundays, holidays, during Holy Week, or during Thanksgiving weekend or the month of December. At the earliest possible time, contact Lynne Koeniger to talk about your plans. Please do not make any firm plans until you have cleared a date on the church calendar.
