Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

Genesis 2:24

Con­grat­u­la­tions on your upcom­ing marriage!

At Athey Creek, we believe that the insti­tu­tion of mar­riage is hon­or­able in the sight of the Lord. With this in mind, we are pleased to be a part of what He is doing in your lives. We desire to be a bless­ing to you as you plan for this impor­tant day.

Who can be mar­ried at ACCF?

We believe that mar­riage is an insti­tu­tion sanc­tioned by God, which joins one man and one woman in a sin­gle, exclu­sive union (Gen­e­sis 2:24, Hebrews 13:4).

Any cou­ple inter­est­ed in get­ting mar­ried at ACCF must first sub­mit the online appli­ca­tion and meet with one of our pas­tors. Each wed­ding will be prayer­ful­ly con­sid­ered on a case-by-case basis. The ACCF pas­tor who meets with you will be able to give you clear­er direc­tion once you have had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to meet togeth­er. Athey Creek’s wed­ding min­istry exists to serve in a vari­ety of ways: — Pre­mar­i­tal coun­sel­ing with an ACCF pas­tor — An ACCF pas­tor who will offi­ci­ate your wed­ding — Onsite wed­dings at ACCF — An ACCF pas­tor who will offi­ci­ate an off­site wed­ding at an alter­nate venue

What Hap­pens Next?

  1. As a cou­ple, you sub­mit the online application.
  2. Our Lead Wed­ding Coor­di­na­tor will con­tact you to sched­ule your ini­tial pre­mar­i­tal appointment. 
  3. You will meet with an ACCF pas­tor for your first pre­mar­i­tal appoint­ment. Typ­i­cal­ly, cou­ples will meet with a pas­tor sev­er­al times over the course of their engage­ment to exam­ine what the Bible has to say about mar­riage and how to pre­pare for a new life together. 
  4. After your ini­tial meet­ing, our Lead Wed­ding Coor­di­na­tor will con­tact you to sched­ule the remain­der of your pre­mar­i­tal appointments.
  5. You will be con­nect­ed with your cer­e­mo­ny coor­di­na­tor who will assist you with any details per­tain­ing to your cer­e­mo­ny. Your coor­di­na­tor will also direct your wed­ding rehearsal, assist the pas­tor and facil­i­tate details on the day of your wedding. 

Please note: You will find that our wed­ding coor­di­na­tors are a great resource to help your cer­e­mo­ny flow smooth­ly. If an ACCF pas­tor is offi­ci­at­ing your wed­ding off­site, an Athey Creek Coor­di­na­tor is required to facil­i­tate your dress rehearsal and direct the order of ceremony. 

Final­ly, the most impor­tant thing is that you have fun and enjoy your time togeth­er. We have wit­nessed the Lord do many great things in mar­riages and are excit­ed to see what the Lord will do in your lives dur­ing this won­der­ful time!
