WEDDINGS AT BEREAN

We are delighted you are considering having your wedding ceremony take place at Berean SDA Church. You do not need to be a member of our church family in order to be married in our sanctuary. We believe marriage is a covenant between a woman and a man who, before God, make a lifelong commitment to each other. In our wedding ceremonies, we rejoice that marriage is a gift given by God, blessed by Jesus Christ and sustained by the Holy Spirit. The wedding ceremony marks the beginning of a union between the husband and wife and Christ and celebrates God’s plan for marriage. For more information and to check availability, contact Joe Gaiter.
