Weddings & Receptions
A wedding is one of the happiest moments in life. The celebration of Christian marriages is the occasion of a service of worship of great significance. It is a service in which Christians, particularly you as Bride and Groom, come together to offer special thanks and praise and to ask God’s blessing upon your life together as husband and wife. It is for this reason that at least one of you must be a professing Christian. A Christian wedding is also the corporate, or congregational, worship of all those gathered. They are not spectators, but worshipers. In a Christian wedding service, God comes first. It is God who is being worshiped and whose blessing is being sought.
The Christian wedding, therefore, is different from many other wedding ceremonies. Avondale Presbyterian Church is not a facility to be rented, but seeks to provide the place and setting for a Christian wedding service. We wish to provide the type of environment conductive to the genuine celebration of your marriage, but your sincerity and Christian commitment are primary. The beauty of a wedding lies not in elaborateness, but in the attitude of those who take part.
See our Wedding Policies for more information.
Funerals and Memorials
SERVICES OF WITNESS TO THE RESURRECTION
The resurrection is a central doctrine of the Christian faith and shapes Christian’s attitudes and responses to the event of death. Death brings loss, sorrow, and grief to all. In the face of death Christians affirm, with tears and joy, the hope of the gospel. Christians do not bear bereavement in isolation but are sustained by the power of the Spirit and the community of faith.
For information about funeral services and space in our Columbarium, please call the office at 704-333-6194.
The sacrament of baptism is the sign and seal of the covenant God has made with us in Jesus Christ. Our Christian identity begins in baptism, and in this sacrament we are marked forever as Christ's own. Baptism assures us of our cleansing from sin, of our participation in Christ's death and resurrection, and of our welcome into the household of God.
For information about baptism (of infants, youth and adults), please contact our Senior Pastor at 704-333-6194.
