NewSpring Couples Ministry is dedicated to guiding healthy and struggling marriages through the application of biblical principles. Because of this, we support God’s design for marriage as set forth in the Bible. This blueprint involves a man and a woman first being committed to loving and serving God, and then committing to loving and serving each other for a lifetime.
All weddings at NewSpring Church will be held in the North Auditorium or an office. The teaching series at NewSpring Church make use of extensive stage set designs, which will not be changed or removed. A ten-foot-tall curtain is available to cover some of the stage sets. Please note that the curtain will not cover all elements of the stage, including intelligent lights, drum cage, speaking monitor, and any aerial props. This should be clearly understood by all members of the wedding party. The curtain will allow for wedding photography without set design in view.
Weddings need to be on the church calendar six months in advance to allow sufficient time to schedule facilities, arrange personnel and complete the premarital class. Weddings will not be scheduled on holidays or holiday weekends.
Friday weddings must begin no later than 7 p.m. and can begin earlier in the evening.
Saturday and Sunday weddings are no longer offered.
At this time, weddings at NewSpring Church are performed by Pastor Jonathan Hoover.
The rehearsal will need to be scheduled on the church calendar along with the ceremony, following the steps outlined previously. It is expected that the rehearsal will not exceed one hour total. This is our allotted building access time. It will be up to you to inform your wedding party of the schedule. Remember that we are a large church with many activities going on simultaneously and it is important to stay within the prescribed time limits.
- Please bring your marriage license and give it to the Wedding Coordinator at the rehearsal.
- The officiating minister and NewSpring’s Wedding Coordinator will conduct the rehearsal.
- If it is necessary for members of the wedding party to bring children, please keep them with you at all times. They will not be allowed to roam around the building unsupervised.
