Weddings

At First Congregational United Church of Christ, we hold wedding services for both members and non-members.


We ask couples to consider joining our yearly pre-marital classes which we host in the spring of each new year for couples getting married later that calendar year or early into the new year.


We do not permit weddings at the church that do not include our own clergy, but are always open to partnering with clergy from other churches to co-officiate a service.


During Holy Week (Palm Sunday to Easter) and Christmas week, we are open to hosting services but additional fees will be charged.


We offer live web streaming, allowing out-of-town guests to view the wedding live.

Memorial Services

At First Congregational United Church of Christ we boldly proclaim at the death of a loved one that death does not have the final word in that loved one’s life. As Jesus reminds us, “I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die like everyone else, I say to you they will live again.” John 11:25

 

It is in the faith, hope and love of Christ that we celebrate and honor the death of those in our faith community, believing that death in Christ has lost its sting and god has yet more in store for us.
