Plan a Wedding

Marriage is designed by God to be a picture of His love for us.  Scripture teaches that God is a community of three persons (Father,Son and Holy Spirit) living in a relationship of mutual, self sacrificing love. All of our relationships, including marriage, are to mimic this example. Marriage is intended to be a permanent, covenanted relationship of one man and one woman living together in mutual, self-sacrificing love, with both husband and wife subject to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

That is why we take marriage and preparation for marriage so seriously. We want you to experience the profound joy that comes from a God-centered marriage. We want to do everything we can to make the process as easy as possible, and your marriage to be as God-honouring as possible.

Steps for Planning Your Wedding at FBC

Submit a Wedding Request if you desire any of the following:

  1. Pre-marital counselling. This is an important pre-requisite for either of the next two steps.
  2. A First Baptist pastor to perform the wedding
  3. A wedding at First Baptist

Place your request with the church office. Call (306) 359-1450 or email [email protected] He/she will gather pertinent information and connect you with those who can help with other details

Flexibility

Please understand that a request for a wedding is just that – a request. Only those requests which comply with our church’s understanding of the nature of marriage (see our Marriage Brochure) will be considered. Requests which do comply with our church’s understanding of the nature of marriage still require the approval of the minister.

We will do all we can to honour your request. But due to constraints on the facility and pastoral schedule, alternatives may be requested..

Pre-marriage Class

We offer a multi-session class designed to help engaged couples prepare for the commitment of marriage. Topics include:

  • the God-centered design for marriage
  • personalities
  • finances
  • sexuality
