“Marriage is a gift God has given to all humankind for the well-being of the entire human family. Marriage involves a unique commitment between two people, traditionally a man and a woman, to love and support each other for the rest of their lives. The sacrificial love that unites the couple sustains them as faithful and responsible members of the church and the wider community.” – from “The Book of Order”
Weddings are occasions of both joy and reverence — joy because of the gifts of love and happiness that two people have found in each other, and reverence because of the deep commitment they have made to live out their vows under the grace of God. Many weddings are solemnized at Shandon in accord with the theology and liturgy of the Presbyterian Church. The staff of Shandon Presbyterian Church is eager to help make your wedding a lovely and meaningful event and asks your careful attention to our wedding guidelines. The first step for Shandon members who want to celebrate marriage with a wedding in the sanctuary is to call the church business office, (803) 771-4408, to check for available dates.
