Weddings

WeddingFirst Presbyterian Church (FPC) offers the full benefit of the Church’s ministry to its members. A wedding is a sacred occasion and a worship service. Everything that is planned as part of the service should be with this objective in mind and in accordance with the doctrines, beliefs, and regular worship practices of First Presbyterian Church.

We have assembled a packet of important information to help you through all of the aspects of planning a wedding at First Presbyterian Church of York.

WeddingPlease contact the church office to request the information and ask any questions that you may have. Although it is also included in the information packet, we have provided a summary of wedding ceremony costs here as it relates to the church.
