Weddings

We are available to provide a beautiful setting for your wedding.
Our minister is willing to help you design your service to be exactly what you have always dreamed of having on your special day.

Our building is a beautiful historic church with stained glass windows in the hill section of Wilkes-Barre.
Our wedding packages include everything you will need to make this an easy ceremony for you to plan.
Our main sanctuary seats 200 people.  Our platform area can accommodate a large wedding party if that is your desire.

We have a nice church reception hall that can accommodate up to 100 people for a meal or for a simple reception.  We do not allow alcohol.

There are two church parking lots off Bethel Street, in the rear of the spiritual center. .

Costs

The cost, of course, depends on the size of the wedding/holy union and the building usage.

For a large wedding/holy union that would also include a rehearsal- the cost would be $575.  This figure includes the church rental (approximately 4 hours) for the wedding, the rehearsal,  the minister’s fee, the organist’s fee, our church wedding coordinator’s  expense, and the janitorial expenses.  It does not include any flowers or other decorations.

For a smaller wedding, one that will have no more than 50 guests, and does not require a rehearsal- the cost would be $450.  This figure includes the church rental (approximately 2 hours) for the wedding, the minister’s fee, the organist’s fee, the wedding coordinators’ expense, and the janitorial expenses.

Rehearsals are important when we have larger wedding parties, children involved, the bridal couple writing their own vows, or other special elements.

The cost to rent our “Harmony Hall” is $225 for a two-hour reception.   Special decorating for the reception is up to the bridal couple.

For a wedding that is very small (less than 10 people involved) and will be using our Prayer Chapel the cost is $200.  The fee covers only church rental and the minister’s fee.

Of course our minister is available to officiate at a location of your choice outside the church setting.  If our minister must travel over 15 miles from the church there will be an additional mileage charge.  The fee for a wedding with a rehearsal is $250.  A Wedding without a rehearsal is $225.

Rules:

  • All weddings will are  scheduled at on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • A nonrefundable $50 deposit is required to reserve the wedding date and time.  Final payment must be received at least one week before the ceremony.
  • The wedding party must be sober at the time of the wedding.
