Interested in having your wedding at FPC?

We are delighted you are considering First Presbyterian Church of Lakeland for your wedding ceremony. A Christian wedding service in this church is a service of worship in the house of God. A wedding, the door by which a couple enters into this meaningful relationship, should be one of the most sacred and happiest moments in all of life.

We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and follow the guidelines of the Directory of Worship, which is part of the Constitution of the Presbyterian Church (USA). A copy is available upon request from the church office. The following is a paragraph from the Directory of Worship (W-4.9000, 1995-1996):

“Marriage is a gift God has given to all humankind for the well-being of the entire human family. Marriage is a civil contract between a woman and a man. For Christians, marriage is a covenant through which a man and a woman are called to live out together, before God, their lives of discipleship. In a service of Christian marriage, a lifelong commitment is made by a woman and a man to each other, publicly witnessed and acknowledged by the community of faith.”
