Wedding Guidelines

Excerpt:

"We do affirm the statements of the United Methodist Church which read: “We affirm the sanctity of the marriage covenant that is expressed in love, mutual support, personal commitment, and shared fidelity between a man and a woman. We believe that God’s blessings rest upon such marriage, whether or not there are children of the union. We reject the social norms that assume different standards for women tan for men in marriage. We support civil laws in civil society that define marriage as the union of one man and one woman.”
