WEDDINGS & FUNERALS

GUIDELINES

Weddings

We are so excited to serve you during the process of marriage and wedding planning. We offer many resources to help you plan and execute your rehearsal and wedding.

Though the culture has evolving definitions of marriage, we believe that it is God alone who has the ultimate authority to prescribe and describe the marital relationship (Gen. 2:24; Matt. 19:1–9; Mark 10:1–12). Because of this understanding, we will only recognize marriages that meet the biblical definition: a covenant relationship between one gender­-normative man and one gender­-normative woman. The pastors, ministers and staff of Mountain View will only participate in weddings and officiate marriages that meet this definition, and the facilities and property of Mountain View will only host marriage ceremonies that meet this definition.

Deposits and Fees

 

The fee is $1000, including a refundable $50 deposit. An additional $100 is charged to use our sound system. Additional $100 for projection.

Holidays and Weddings

 

Weddings and rehearsals may not be scheduled on Easter weekend, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving weekend, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, the day and week following Christmas, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.

SCHEDULING A WEDDING

  1. Complete the scheduling form to indicate the day you want to have your wedding. You cannot schedule a wedding more than one year ahead of time and no less than three months from your desired date. Our wedding coordinator will contact you to confirm availability. Confirmation does not guarantee the date for your wedding. The date will only be held when we receive the wedding application and $50 deposit.

  2. Once we confirm your desired date, complete the Wedding Application. You will receive an email confirming that we received your application and booked your date. Then the wedding coordinator will set up a meeting to discuss the church's policies.

  3. All couples must complete an approved premarital counseling course before marriage. 

  4. One month prior to your wedding, our coordinator will meet with you to discuss final details, including ceremony specifics, decorations and production needs. The remaining $950 is due at this meeting.

  1. If you want a pastor from Mountain View to officiate your wedding, complete and submit the Wedding Application.

  2. You cannot schedule a pastor from Mountain View to perform your ceremony more than 1 year ahead of time and must request one no later than 3 months from your wedding date.

Only certain days and times of the week are open, and those times often change week to week.
