Planning Your Wedding… Traditional, Interfaith, Secular?

Pastors’ Steve Harms and Elizabeth Chandler Felts are available to answer your questions and to help you plan this commemorative occasion.  They will help you prepare a ceremony that fits your distinctive needs.

If you prefer using your own officiate, our pastor will work with you to develop the celebration you desire. Our goal is to ensure everyone communicates effectively. We are able to address and resolve any conflicts that may arise over family dynamics.
