Music Requirements for Weddings

Contact: Edward Eicker

A Christian wedding should be characterized by dignity, reverence and joy.  It is not only the solemn exchange of vows by an engaged couple, but it is also an act of worship in which the bride and groom, along with their family and friends, come together to offer thanks and praise and to ask God’s blessing on their life together as husband and wife.  It follows, then, that it is a communal celebration; the guests are there not as mere spectators, but as worshippers.  They should be drawn into active participation through prayer and song so that they may share more fully in this holy and happy occasion.

Wedding Ministry

Wedding Coordinators are a group of volunteers who coordinate rehearsals and assist at wedding ceremonies. Usually two ministers team up to help with one wedding. They contact the couple to obtain information about the ceremony to help the rehearsal run smoothly. On the day of the wedding, ministers set up the church (kneelers, Unity Candle, etc.) and help everyone get organized and down the aisle.
