Weddings

A church is a wonderful place to have a wedding if you want God’s blessing upon your marriage. Lake Murray Presbyterian is a beautiful place for a wedding – with its center aisle, worshipful setting, and seating capacity of about 550. The Christian church has traditionally encouraged people to get married in a church building, but also recognizes that it is even more important to have the faith in our hearts to really receive God’s blessing.

Over the years, the church has experienced loss and abuse (often not intentionally) by those who have used the church. To be good stewards of the building that many have sacrificed to build at LMPC, there are several rules to be followed.

Please call the church office (345-5140) or e-mail us if you wish to reserve the sanctuary for a wedding. To be married by one of our ministers, our church requires at least one counseling session. We require the use of our wedding director, organist and pastor. However, other organists and ministers may be used with permission from the pastor. Please call to get more specific information.
