Plan Your Wedding

Marriage is esteemed to be one of God’s most profound expressions of love. The commitment, established through declarations of love and promises of faithfulness two individuals make to one another, is regarded in scripture as being reminiscent of the spiritual union between Christ Jesus and the Church.


In order to be wedded at Emmanuel or by one of our associate ministers (ordained clergy), couples must attend and complete PREMARITAL PLUNGE; a small-group style pre-marriage session wherein engaged couples and couples contemplating marriage explore and discuss matters that have been found to have a profound impact on the marital relationship. These full-day sessions are held quarterly on a designated Saturday. The fee for the session is $50.00 per couple and is applied to help offset the cost of the session. Please complete the registration form and you will be contacted within 3 to 5 business days. For more information please email:

To Register for Premarital Plunge, email:

*Special Courses are arranged at the discretion of the Senior and Executive Pastors of EBC.*

Scheduling the Ceremony:

After completing PREMARITAL PLUNGE, the couple will once again be put in contact with a Ceremony Administrator who will assist in scheduling a ceremony at Emmanuel or arranging for one of Emmanuel’s clergy to perform the ceremony at an alternate location. The Ceremony Administrator will also establish a time for the couple to come in and formalize the terms of the wedding agreement. The signed agreement is to be accompanied by a $500.00 deposit.


All other costs/fees associated with the ceremony will be determined and noted in the agreement. All fees are to be paid in full one (1) month prior to the ceremony. To make wedding arrangements, please contact EBC’s Ceremony Administrator:
