Supporting marriage preparation and wedding ceremonies is a part of our Pastors' ministry to the immediate church and the wider community. Understanding that Jesus himself showed no partiality among persons, we welcome Charlotte residents and those from out of town as well as hetero- and homosexual couples to marry within our church.
The pastor asks to meet with couples at least 3 times in preparation for the wedding followed by a rehearsal and the ceremony itself. Couples are welcome to bring their own officiant (at an extra cost for facility management) but we ask that the service be a religious one in keeping with our usage of the sacred space.
The following are our fees:
Ministerial Services - $500
Use of Sanctuary - $300
Use of Sanctuary with other minister - $500
Use of Sanctuary and Vestry for reception - $800
Non-refundable deposit - $100 (Required at the time of reservation)
Please contact us regarding your request for marriage at least 6 months in advance. 802-425-3176.
Funerals and Memorial Services
Our pastors are available for funeral and memorial services within the church sanctuary as well as graveside services wherever they may be held.
Families are welcome to use the vestry for a reception following the service. While the church does not have a committee to provide the refreshments, family and friends or recommended catering services are welcome to use the kitchen and fellowship hall.
