Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But, the greatest of these is love. 1 CORINTHIANS 13:4-8A, 13 (NIV)
The service of Christian marriage in the church is a worship service. It is one of the most sacred rites, which the Pastor performs under the ordination, and the authority of the church. All wedding ceremonies performed in this church have the blessings of the church.
In order that you may have a sacred and dignified wedding, you are urged to make thorough preparations, spiritual as well as temporal. The Pastors, Wedding Coordinator, and Staff of Cypress United Methodist Church wish to extend every possible assistance to you that your wedding in the church will be a memorable experience.
Therefore, serious study and careful judgments have gone into the preparation of the church's wedding policies and regulations. They have been reviewed and approved by the Trustee Board of Cypress United Methodist Church and have become the official policy and procedures related to weddings and wedding receptions.
