A non-refundable $100.00 deposit is required to make the facility reservation. This deposit is applied to the total rental amount due. In the event that the wedding should be postponed or canceled, all fees are returned, except the non-refundable deposit of $100.00. All fees—to be made by check or cash—are due one month prior to the wedding.
Weddings are must be scheduled at least three months prior to the wedding date.
Because of heavy church programming, weddings or rehearsals may not be held on Sunday, holidays*, or the month of December.

Our pastors are available to officiate weddings for an honorarium gift. Pastors or ministers from other churches within the evangelical Christian denomination may officiate your ceremony at our facility, per approval from our Senior Pastor. Outside pastors must meet the state license requirements.
Because of the scriptural emphasis placed on the marriage commitment, we desire to help prepare couples for a lasting marriage. Therefore, all couples who schedule our facility for their wedding ceremony and who use our pastors are required to have premarital counseling.
Music and Sound
If the couple needs a pianist for their ceremony, the Wedding Coordinator can supply them with a Vendors List to choose from. Each music person used is a separate contract between the bride and groom and that person. Their services are not included in the facility fees. It is the bride and groom’s responsibility to contact their musician(s) and find out their fees. Their checks should be made payable to the respective musician.
Sound amplification will be necessary for all weddings.The sound system is to be operated by church personnel only.
It is the bride’s responsibility to find and reserve the caterer of her choice. The Wedding Coordinator has a list of caterers (Vendors List) for the bride to choose from, if desired.
A nursery room may be scheduled for the wedding and/or reception. Reservations are made through the Wedding Coordinator at least one month before the wedding. Only certified North nursery workers may be used.
