A marriage ceremony is an act of worship. It is an occasion in which two people exchange commitments and seek God’s blessing on their union.
As an inclusive church, we joyfully celebrate weddings for members and their families. If you are not currently a member and would like information about joining the church, please call for dates of upcoming Inquirers’ Classes. These are held several times a year.
Scheduling Your Wedding
The date and time of your wedding (and rehearsal) should be set as early as possible.
The first step in scheduling your wedding at First Church is to complete our wedding application. Within a week of receipt, the church administrative assistant, Lisa Polite, (212-675-6150) will let you know the date(s) available for your wedding with the the relevant members of the church staff, including the minister who will perform the ceremony, the organist, and sexton. Once the date is confirmed, we’ll share a Wedding booklet to assist you in preparing for your ceremony. We’re here to help with any questions.
