Planning Your Wedding at Fox Chapel Presbyterian Church
It is our prayer that each and every marriage gives honor to God. This hope is founded on the belief that marriage is a special and unique gift from a loving God who desires to be at the heart of the relationship between a husband and a wife and who desires them to grow in love for God and one another. If you would like to explore the possibility of having your wedding at the church or performed by one of the pastors off-site, contact the church office. We will provide an informational booklet with guidelines and a wedding application form. These are also available on the church’s web site. Marriage is one of God’s greatest blessings. Our sincere desire is that weddings performed at Fox Chapel will be a wonderful experience and a great launch into the joys and challenges of Christian marriage.
Marriage Preparation
Our pastors provide pre-marital counseling for all couples they wed. These sessions allow for the bride, groom, and pastor to get to know one another and for counseling related to spiritual, emotional, and inter-personal issues; and for planning the wedding service. The PREPARE/ENRICH couple assessment program and other tools that may be deemed helpful are used as part of our pre-marital ministry.
Marriage Enrichment
We are committed to the ministry of building strong and healthy marriages and families. This church and its pastors will continue to be available to you for consultation and support as your life as husband and wife unfolds. Marriage enrichment classes are frequently scheduled during the church school hour on Sunday mornings and at other times during the week.
Assistance in Times of Trouble
Pastors are available for short term marriage counseling. When the need is greater, pastors are prepared to recommend a professional counselor.
