Interested in getting married at GracePoint Church?
The pastor, church staff, and the members of the GracePoint Church wish for you the kind of church wedding that honors our Lord, and one you will remember with real happiness and joy through the years.
STEP ONE: REVIEW OUR POLICY
This policy listed below has been adopted by the church in
the spirit of prayer, "that all things be done decently and in
order." The church wants the wedding party to feel welcome and to enjoy
the facilities. We deeply appreciate your cooperation with this policy, and may
God add His blessings to your marriage.
1. Couples wishing to be married
either by a pastor at GracePoint or wishing to use the GracePoint facilities for
their wedding ceremony must adhere to the following guidelines.
a. Couples must not be cohabitating
prior to the wedding ceremony. b. Couples must have gone through
premarital counseling (either by a pastor at GracePoint or the couple may
submit the information for the pastor who did/is doing the premarital counseling for approval
by the Lead Pastor of GracePoint).
2. Weddings for church members may be
scheduled for any future date. Non-church members may only schedule 8 months
prior to date. Non-church members may not schedule their reception at the
3. Weddings at GracePoint will be
limited to those that shall be conducted and performed by licensed ministers.
The officiating minister will be interviewed by church staff for approval. This
policy best serves the interests of our church in maintaining our Baptist
beliefs and distinctives.
4. Wedding requests must be made by
completing the appropriate Wedding Request Form (GracePoint Church Member, or
Non-Member version). Upon receipt of this form, there is a three-step approval
of the availability of our facilities by the church's Facilities Director.
b. Confirmation of the availability of the church's Wedding Coordinator and AV Director.
of the couple and any outside minister by the church's Lead Pastor.
5. After approved arrangements have
been made through the church office, the wedding party will then work through
the church's Wedding Coordinators, whose responsibility is to coordinate and
assist in every way to assure an orderly rehearsal and a beautiful and
worshipful wedding experience. The Wedding Coordinators are knowledgeable and
experienced in church wedding procedures that will honor our Lord. They are
here to help.
6. The wedding party is responsible
for obtaining the minister, the organist or pianist and soloists.
Recommendations will be made if requested. The wedding service is a worship service
and the choice of music should be that which honors God and entrusts the
marital union to His care. Music to be used should be submitted to the Audio
Visual Technician no later than two weeks prior to the wedding. If there is any
question concerning any song used, the Audio Visual Technician will make the
7. The Audio Visual Technician will
facilitate the audio needs for the ceremony. This will include setting up
microphones for instrumentalists, vocalists, and the minister as well as playing
any pre-recorded music. A grand piano can be set up on stage if requested. The
Worship Center is equipped for video projection as well as environmental
projection from GracePoint's library of backgrounds. Please contact the Audio
Visual Technician to discuss this option.
8. Prior to the rehearsal, church
furniture will be removed from the stage by a qualified Audio Visual Team
member (drums, keyboard risers, and projection wall, which will not be removed,
will remain). The church has some candelabras available from the Wedding
Coordinator. Additionally, center stage stairs can be put in place if requested
a minimum of 48 hours before the ceremony.
9. The Wedding Party must respect the
church property at all times: (To avoid embarrassment, it is suggested that
these rules be called to the attention of the wedding party.)
a. Absolutely no smoking inside any
of the buildings at any time. The wedding party is responsible to see that this
policy is followed. b. Absolutely no alcoholic beverages
of any kind are allowed on the church premises. Again, the wedding party is
responsible. c. No furniture or equipment that is
permanently fastened down may be moved. d. Please do not use rice or birdseed
inside or outside the building. e. No tape, nails, tacks, staples,
pins, or anything that will mar woodwork may be used. All candles used must be
non-drip, and protective materials must be used under the candelabras to
protect furniture and floors.
10. We recommend that as many pictures
as possible be taken before the wedding. This prevents the awkward and often
lengthy delay for the wedding guests as pictures are made after the ceremony.
11. Wedding fees include a fee for
custodial care of the worship center. This is intended to cover general
cleaning. It is the shared responsibility of the Wedding Party and Wedding
Coordinators to make sure that all decorations are removed and properly stored
or disposed of before leaving the premises. Any additional spaces used for
wedding (i.e. dressing rooms) should be thoroughly looked over for personal
items and general trash that can be disposed of before leaving.
