Marriage is an important sacrament of the United Church of Christ. In marriage the couple seeks to express to each other the same unconditional love and faithfulness that God expresses to us. Marriage is a public sacrament where a couple gives thanks for God’s love in their own hearts which enables them to love each other. It is also an opportunity for those gathered to receive inspiration from the delight and commitment of the couple and to silently renew their own marriage vows to each other.
Pilgrim’s minister seeks to meet with a perspective couple for as many times as the situation requires. The intent of these meetings is to create a service that is personal and meaningful to the couple, and also to provide any counsel that is called for. For information about general use of the church facilities for a marriage ceremony please consult rentals.
