Wedding Services

The pastor and congregation of the First Presbyterian Church of Wappingers Falls consider it a privilege and joy to assist a couple with having a wedding service in our church.  We want the service to be a beautiful beginning to a thriving and lasting marriage.  Christian marriage is a covenant in which a couple is called to live out a life of discipleship together before God.  We are happy to celebrate the service of marriage for members of our church, and with session’s approval, others with at least one member of the couple a Christian.  Approval must be obtained to invite other clergy to perform or participate in the service.  The pastor will also provide pre-marriage counseling. 

The church organist should be given the right of first refusal for the service.  Any alternate organist/musician must be approved by session.  All arrangements including musical selections should be made well in advance of the service.
