I am curious about how other churches handle situations where non-members request having their marriage ceremony at your church. Does your church have a policy against this? Any advice in handling these situations? Just today I received a message at the church from a young lady wishing to be married at our church. I haven't called her back yet. The groom-to-be is tangentially connected to the church (his grandmother was a member before she passed away last August). I am fairly certain he is unchurched. I find out more after I return the phone call. At this point I do not know who they want to conduct the service. Just a few months ago, we had another couple use our church for their wedding service, but the situation was a little different. They were both members at our local mega/giga-church (Southeast Christian, the 7th largest church in the country with over 17,000 "members"). They wanted to use our sanctuary because the facilities there were just too large. They received premarital counseling from one of the pastors at Southeast, and the former minster (who knew the groom well) performed the ceremony. Any suggestions from your own church experiences and policies?
