We as a Christian community accept all human beings as persons made in the image of God regardless of gender, sexual orientation, or faith background.
We believe (adopted in part from the United Church of Canada Marriage Policy):
That marriage is a blessing from God through which people make a covenant with one another and with God. In marriage we offer one another the promise of lifelong companionship and commitment.
That this unity is a creation of God and is greater than the two individuals. Marriages in Northminster United Church (NUC) will be within the context of Christian worship.
That it is our responsibility to support those entering into covenant relationship with one another, and to support them in their spiritual growth and journey with God.
The United Church in Calgary offers a one day marriage preparation course and we strongly encourage couples to register and attend prior to the wedding. http://pastoralcareunited.ca/main/marriage-prep/
The fee for a wedding at Northminster United is $850. This includes rental of the sanctuary, minister, organist, two church hosts and a sound person. This fee is non-negotiable.
Please contact our office for more information or if you would like to book an appointment to meet with our minister (403-277-0322 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
