Weddings at WMPC
“Let all that you do be done in love.” (1 Corinthians 16:14)
We are delighted you are considering having your wedding ceremony at Memorial Presbyterian Church of Wenonah. Memorial Presbyterian Church prays God’s blessing upon your pending marriage, and hopes to accommodate all who wish to get married while keeping the faith and practices of the church. Your marriage is a sacrament – an outward and visible sign of God’s grace bringing you together and nurturing your love.
We invite and encourage you to join us Sundays at 11:00 a.m. for our worship service. At that time you will be able to meet our pastor, wedding ceremony coordinator and organist as well as experience the work of God that is apparent at Memorial Presbyterian Church (WMPC). We welcome all to become members of our church family, but you do not need to be a member in order to be married in our sanctuary.
Weddings are a part of our ministry. Therefore, weddings at WMPC are conducted under the direction of our pastor, Reverend Keith Reed. The pastor will meet with the bride and groom prior to the ceremony. These appointments will be arranged through the church secretary. A guest pastor may participate in the ceremony.
