FPC Wedding Policy

The Wedding service is a service of Christian worship, a special service which focuses upon the marriage of a man and woman as a gift of God and as an expression of the Christian life.

Newport is a “destination” place for many important events, including weddings. Because of the beauty and location of our church, we have received many calls and inquiries for having weddings take place in our church sanctuary.

In order to honor and protect the stewardship of our pastor’s time, the Session has approved a policy for weddings that take place here at the church which includes:
The couple must have some connection with the church – either as members, as relatives of members, or as those who have been regular participants in the life of the church.
