First let us say congratulations on your engagement!What a joyful thing it is to love someone so deeply that you choose to live the rest of our life with them.
For us weddings are a sacred act and not simply a commercial or legal transaction. Therefore entering into this relationship needs to be rooted in faith. It is never a private event and for that reason weddings take place in the midst of family and friends as well as in the presence of God.
Our expectation is that you will worship with us here at St. Timothy's as you prepare yourselves spiritually and that you will continue to take part in our community with your prayers, presence, and service throughout your married life. What this means is that at least one partner must be a baptized Christian and should be an active worshipping member of Saint Timothy's. Allowance may be made for those who are the child of parents or grandparents who are active members of the church or who may be active in other congregations but who, for geographical or family reasons, desire to be married here.
Weddings should be scheduled at least 6 months before the expected date. All couples are required to complete three to four sessions of pre-marital preparation with the clergy.
