Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials!
On behalf of Goodwill Church we want to congratulate you as you take this exciting step towards your marriage! While marriage is not a sacrament of the Church, it is ordained of God and intended to last as long as the couple shall live. We are honored to assist you in this journey.
Upon completion of the following form, a pastor and your ceremony date will be scheduled. The pastors and church staff make every effort to meet your requested ceremony date. However, please note that the date is reserved based on availability of the sanctuary and the pastor's schedule.
You will also find that premarital counseling is required for weddings at Goodwill Church. The counseling provides an opportunity for the wedding couple to explore and discuss the significance and meaning of their life-long commitment. The assigned pastor will schedule counseling with you directly. You should expect to meet for premarital counseling for at least three sessions, plus an initial consultation. The pastor will usually attend the wedding rehearsal, which will be under the supervision of the wedding coordinator.
It is our pleasure to serve you in this way. We are honored you are considering Goodwill Church for your special day!
