Marriage is an institution established by God the Father and honored by His Son, Jesus Christ. Christ's presence made a difference in a wedding at Cana, as He makes a difference in a wedding at Morning Star Community Church. To make a wedding Christian, Jesus Christ himself must attend and be in evidence. Whether your wedding is large or small, elegant or simple, public or private, it can only be Christian if the hearts and lives of the people involved have been transformed by the presence of Christ. You do not need flowers, music, or formal attire to make a wedding memorable; prayer and counseling with your pastor and a sweet and sacred ceremony are the essentials. Every effort will be made to preserve the sacred ceremony of marriage. We ask you to read the wedding policy carefully so that your wedding will be a happy and hallowed occasion. The pastor and the membership wish for you a very happy wedding day and glorious life together.
