Changes to
Wedding Ministry

Our Wedding Ministry is expanding its offerings for services of marriage beginning immediately. Saturday afternoon or Saturday evening will continue to be our prime time. But in the interest of meeting the needs and desires of more couples while, at the same time, continuing to teach important Christian values and continuing to conduct profound worship, we will now offer weddings on other days of the week and on Saturday mornings.

These non-prime time weddings will be available at a savings as well. The cost of a prime time non-member wedding will continue to be $1,975, all staff included. The cost of a weekday or Saturday morning wedding will be $1,300, with some reduction in the staff we provide.

Some often asked wedding ceremony questions:

  • Do I have to be a member of the church to have your wedding here?
    No, you do not have to be a member. The required fee for non-members is $1975 for Saturday Afternoon & Evening weddings and $1,300 for other days & Saturday morning weddings (before noon).
  • Can my minister perform the ceremony?
    Your minister may assist in the service, but one of our ministers will perform the service, direct the rehearsal and conduct a premarital counseling session.
  • What other things we need to know about using your church?
    We have insurance requirements, guidelines for music, decorating, photography, optional fees, etc. For details, call the church at 817-336-7185 or fill out the form on this page for a complete booklet, tour of the facilities and to set the date for your wedding.

First Christian Church in Fort Worth, the city’s first congregation, founded in 1855, welcomes you in celebrating the love of God.  We hope your wedding will be an occasion for just that – a celebration of God’s love and the way that love is reflected in your love for each other.  It is in that spirit that we welcome you in planning a wedding in this grand old building.

A wedding in this church is a service of worship. It is first and foremost about the worship of God, with God and Jesus Christ at the center of what we do.  It is not merely a social occasion, but a convenant-making in which you will pledge before God to be faithful to each other and to remember that Christian marriage is a true partnership of love, respect and mutuality. In coming to this church for your wedding, you make clear that you want your wedding to be a sacred service, symbolic of a life lived in the presence of God.
