Wedding Officiate Request Form:

There are many ways to have a wedding, but we take seriously inviting the Lord to bless your marriage within the church. Therefore, Pastors at Bethany do not marry people living together (I Thess. 4:3-6, I Cor. 6:9-10), same sex couples (Gen 2:24), or those who are "unequally yoked" (2 Cor. 6:12-20).

Notes

Its actively enforced policy is not located in website's primary pages nor obviously linked to in any way, but was discoverable only through searching the website for "same-sex."
