As God is love, so has God given to us the capacity to express love, and marriage provides us the opportunity to reflect on the divine relationship of love.
St. John’s feels blessed to be a part of wedding ceremonies, to bring together a harmony of personalities, to help create a unity of one from two as couples promise their love and their lives to each other.
St. John’s members and non-members are welcome to have weddings at St. John's.
All couples who wish to marry, regardless of sexual orientation, are welcome.
A St. John’s minister will officiate at the wedding service.
