Calvary Bellflower Wedding Policy
We are very honored that you would consider Calvary Bellflower Church as the venue for your very special day. As a church, we view the Wedding Ceremony as one of the most sacred ceremonies and actually see it as a biblical covenant between a man and a woman and God. Therefore, we desire to have wedding ceremonies at Calvary that will honor the Lord Jesus Christ and become a day that will set the tone for the rest of your marriage and family. In order to make this a beautiful day for you, your family, our church, and the guests, we have set the following standards for all who wish to have their Wedding Ceremony here at Calvary Bellflower Church:
1. Both the Groom and the Bride have accepted Jesus Christ as Savior.
2. One, either Groom or Bride, must be an active member of Calvary Bellflower Church.
3. You will need to complete at least six premarital counseling sessions with one of the Pastors
or an approved Pastor before your wedding date is set on the CBC calendar.
4. You must be living a lifestyle that represents a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and biblical values, therefore, you cannot be living together from the time the premarital counseling begins until your wedding day, and you will agree to keep yourselves sexually pure. If you are currently living together, or are living a lifestyle that contradicts our biblical lifestyle values, you will need to talk to one of the Pastors about your options.
5. There will be no alcohol on the premises.
With the above standards in mind, take the following next steps in order to set up your wedding ceremony at Calvary Bellflower Church....
1. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for a link to the Premarital Counseling assessment and the next steps.
2. Complete at least six premarital counseling sessions with a Pastor Ken.
3. You will receive a call to set an appointment with our Wedding Coordinator to discuss your ceremony and reception plans.
4. Get ready for a beautiful, God honoring wedding ceremony that you both feel great peace about, knowing that you are standing before the Lord making this sacred vow together in total obedience to Him.
“This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.” Genesis 2:24 NLT
God bless you in your decision for Him,
