Weddings at Old Stone Church
Old Stone Church welcomes all couples to celebrate their marriage in our historic Sanctuary. Weddings here are occasions of both joy and reverence — joy because of the love and happiness that the couple have found in each other, and reverence because of the commitment they have made to live out their vows under the grace of God. The staff of Old Stone is eager to help make your wedding a lovely and meaningful event.

Old Stone provides a wedding administrator to oversee the arrangements and details of the wedding service. Once the wedding date is confirmed on our calendar by the Wedding Administrator, she will meet with you to discuss the guidelines and answer questions about arrangements, minister, music, fees and the use of the church facilities.
Marriage Preparation Seminar
Old Stone Church not only helps couples prepare for their wedding ceremonies, but also assists couples in preparing for their marriage. The success of a marriage is not exclusively the charge of the newlyweds, but rather a continuous effort of the couple to actively invite God into their relationship with the support of the community.
Each couple who chooses to get married at Old Stone Church is required to participate in the Marriage Preparation Program and meet with the minister who will officiate their ceremony. Using the Prepare/Enrich Program® and led by the pastoral staff and professional marriage educators, our Marriage Preparation Seminars are held three times throughout the year and offer couples the opportunity to strengthen the foundation of their marriage and enhance relationship skills through discussion and practice in the areas of communication, personal stress, conflict resolution, financial management, intimacy, relationship roles, spiritual beliefs, and marriage expectations.
Seminar format is as follows:
- Friday Evening: 7-9:30 pm
- Saturday: 9 am-3:30 pm (lunch included)
- Sunday: 9 am- noon
Couples planning to be married in other venues are welcome to attend the Old Stone Church Marriage Preparation Seminar for a fee of $200.00. Please contact the Wedding Administrator for availability; space is limited.
Old Stone Church has multiple ministers who participate in the Marriage Preparation Program. The officiating minister for your ceremony is assigned based on a rotating schedule and availability. Outside ministers are permitted to assist in the ceremony at the discretion of the officiating minister. Requests for this arrangement can be made to the Wedding Administrator.
