Getting Married @ GBPC

Christian marriage is a covenant through which a man and a woman are called to make a lifelong commitment to each other and takes place in a special service, which focuses upon marriage as a gift of God and an expression of the Christian life. A wedding at Great Bridge Presbyterian Church will conform to the mandates of the Constitution of the Presbyterian Church and the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia. In keeping with the Book of Order (w-4.9003), “the marriage service is under the direction of the Minister and the supervision of the Session”, and facilitated by the wedding coordinator.

  •  Call or email one of our Wedding Coordinators, Robynne King (482-2949),soyking@cox.net  or Jennifer Cahoon (548-4997), jennifer_cahoon@cox.net .Your Coordinator will be your contact person from the church, will check date availability, and will mark your date tentatively on the church calendar.
