Congratulations, we wish you well as you begin your journey into married life.
Christians believe that marriage is a gift from God. In the marriage ceremony, a couple make a public declaration of lifelong commitment to love each other, come what may. We believe God intends loving relationships to be faithful, responsible, healing and sustaining of the couple and those around them. You will probably invest a lot of time planning your wedding. The day is important, but your marriage should last for the rest of your life.
We, at Rosedale Presbyterian Church, celebrate with you as you plan your wedding to one another at our church, or at a suitable venue of your choosing. For those of us at Rosedale, who will be working with you, it is always an incredible privilege to perform a marriage ceremony. We are able to become part of one of the most significant days in your life and share in the hopes of your new lifetime partnership. It is a joy to come to know each couple, as well as their families and friends. A wedding should be joy-filled and a participatory experience for all attending, so that each person attending leaves with their own relationship renewed.
We appreciate the opportunity to offer guidance, yet be flexible, open and adventurous with a couples’ crafting of the ceremony. It is all significant because God is present and invites us to the party of community, relationships and above all, love!
