Wedding Policy for The First Presbyterian Church of Cranbury

We are a church that enjoys a large and active membership. As a result, we, with rare exception, reserve the use of our sanctuary for weddings within our church family. We encourage all future brides and grooms to become a part of our church family by worshipping with us on Sundays at least one year before the wedding date. We invite all those who are not yet members to consider joining our church.

Should you have any questions regarding the information provided, please feel free to email the church office (firstpresoffice@comcast.net) or phone the office at 609-395-0897.

  1. Wedding Information Sheet
  2. Wedding Request Form

As soon as the date of your marriage is determined, clear it with the minister and the church office. If you wish to ask another minister to participate in the service, the proper procedure is to make this known to a minister of this church, who, if appropriate, will extend the invitation to the other minister.

Fees include the cost for the use of the sanctuary for the wedding and rehearsal, ministerial services and the wedding service coordinator. Please call the church office for the fee schedule at 609/395-0897.

Should you wish to use any other part of the building application must be made well in advance. The office staff will send you the appropriate Buildings and Grounds Committee 'request for use' forms, which must be approved by the Pastor and Buildings and Grounds Committee. A separate fee will be applied depending on which room(s) you would like to use.

Organist/Musician fees are not included and should be arranged directly with the organist/musician. The church organist is often asked to play when music is desired. If a soloist is also to share in the service the organist should be so informed. For further information and a schedule of fees consult our organist, Don Klotzbeacher at (business) 732/329-6020, (cell) 732/986-6673, or via e-mail at dklotzbeacher@aol.com.

Selections for special music shall be cleared with the minister and organist. The Presbyterian Book of Order states: "Such music as accompanies the ceremony should direct attention to God who sanctifies marriage, and special care should be taken to assure that it is suitable and reverent." If desired, the congregation may be invited to join in the singing of hymns at the beginning and conclusion of the service.

Faith, Love & Hope - The Greatest of these is Love
