Q. Can I get married in Second Congregational Church?

 

If you have never been to worship at Second Congregational Church, we invite you to attend at least one worship service (Sunday morning worship is at 10 o’clock). That way you’ll get a sense of who the pastor is, what the church “feels” like, etc. If, after worshipping with us, it feels like a good fit, you should speak with the pastor and set up a time for you and your fiance(e) to meet with her. If you think of a church wedding as simply what is expected, but find “God language” meaningless or problematic, we suggest you consider having your ceremony performed by a Justice of the Peace. If there are no other events scheduled for that day, it may still be possible to hold your wedding in our church.

 

Q. Can we have our Civil Union performed at Second Congregational Church?

 

We are proud that our church was the first UCC congregation in Vermont to become an “open and affirming church” meaning that we welcome all people of faith, or in search of faith, without regard to age, race, sex, economic condition, disability or sexual orientation. We invite you attend worship here to get a “feel” for the pastor and place. If you are coming from out of the area, you may contact the pastor about performing your Civil Union. The same guidelines apply as for weddings–If you have, or are actively seeking, a relationship with God, the pastor would be happy to meet with you and your partner. If a civil ceremony would have more integrity for you, we sugggest you consider having your ceremony performed by a Justice of the Peace. If there are no other events scheduled for that day, it may still be possible to hold your civil union in our church.
