Working with couples preparing for marriage is a happy occasion for us at Epiphany. Our aim is to help in every way—by encouraging, affirming, and supporting during the preparatory period and at the time of the marriage. We are eager to help make your wedding a joyful and meaningful experience. We will do our best to keep it from being more stressful than it needs to be.
Marriage is one of the most challenging and rewarding human relationships, one that is meant to be lived out in a community of faith that supports and nurtures those seeking to grow in love, forgiveness, justice, and compassion. When you choose to be married at Epiphany, we invite and encourage you to be supported by and committed to this church community. If you live out of town, we invite and encourage you to find a community at home that will support you in your life together.
Reading the attached booklet is your first step in letting us help prepare you for both your wedding and your marriage.
In our work with couples of all ages, we understand that the planning of weddings, large or small, can at times eclipse the marriage itself at this stage of your inquiry. That’s why we believe it is helpful at this time to be both welcoming and clear about what we believe and practice, and what we can offer you in terms of where and how your wedding will be celebrated.
Preparing for marriage is a holy time. We pray that God’s blessing will be with all who participate.
