Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions & Couple's Responsibilities
Are there any requirements before we get married?
Yes. Bolton Community Church requires couples to participate in our Premarital Seminar. Couples will be required to meet with the Senior Pastor in order to discuss their readiness for marriage. This is so that the Pastor can answer any questions they may have.
When should we book our wedding?
We advise every couple to enter our marriage preparation process as soon as they are thinking seriously of being married or well before their preferred wedding date. Six months to one year advanced notice is highly recommended..
Will anyone help us coordinate our wedding?
Yes. The pastor will oversee the wedding rehearsal and directing the wedding ceremony. He will meet with the bride and groom to discuss the details of the wedding in order to make sure they align with our policies. The couple may be creative in their ceremony, keeping in mind that a wedding is a worship ceremony and all aspects of the ceremony should be planned in conjunction with the Senior Pastor.
Who will officiate our ceremony?
Our Pastor who is ordained, licensed, commissioned or otherwise authorized by this church to solemnize marriages may do so, in the exercise of religious freedom, only where the participants are one man and one woman (Gen. 2:21–24; Matt. 19:4–6; Mark 10:6–9). Please note that only pastor of Bolton Community Church can perform weddings on our campus, unless there is a prior agreement.
