Weddings

We are excited to serve you as you prepare for your wedding! Getting married is one of the most significant events in a person’s life, and we look forward to helping you prepare for a life-long marriage centered in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We believe that it is God alone who has the ultimate authority to prescribe and describe the marital relationship (Gen. 2:24; Matt. 19:1-9; Mark 10:1-12). Our church and our pastors believe God’s design also represents God’s best for us. Therefore, we will only recognize marriages that meet the biblical definition: a covenant relationship between one gender­-normative man and one gender­-normative woman. The pastors and staff of Rehoboth will only participate in weddings and officiate marriages that meet this definition. The facilities and property of Rehoboth will only host marriage ceremonies that meet this definition.

Due to the active use of Rehoboth’s facilities, only active members may request Rehoboth facilities for weddings, receptions, showers, anniversaries, or vow renewals, and usage fees are required for the use of any facilities.
