CANAL STREET WEDDINGS
THE ESTABLISHMENT OF STRONG MARRIAGE RELATIONSHIPS IS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PROVISIONS OF GOD'S PLAN FOR HUMANKIND.
Our Wedding Wish
We, at Canal Street Church, want you to know that we are very interested in your coming marriage.
We desire to help you as you prepare for this relationship and responsibility.
We are pleased to share with you in the planning of your wedding. Your wedding is extremely important for you and also for us.
We want your wedding to reflect both of your desires, as well as the principles and standards of this church.
We encourage you to focus on the relationship of three persons — you, the person you intend to marry and Jesus Christ,
who alone makes a marriage loving, lasting, fulfilling and exciting. We remind you that this relationship between you, your intended,
and Jesus Christ is far more important than the actual “marriage ceremony”, which lasts only a few minutes.
We, the Leadership Team, covenant to pray for you and with you as you begin to make plans for this great event.
It is our prayer that you are both Christians, fully aware of what you are undertaking in making this profound covenant with each other.
A Christian is a person who has entered into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. This means that a Christian’s
life-style is determined and controlled by Jesus Christ under the guidance and direction of the Holy Spirit.
Therefore it is not only sensible but also desirous that the one to whom you are going to be married share this relationship with you,
so that there is harmony and oneness at this most basic level.
As you plan your wedding ceremony, we desire it it to be an expression of your Christian faith and love
and you will want this service to be full of rich spiritual meaning — an act of worship.
Please know we perform only a few select weddings per year.
