Guidelines for Your Wedding at RMCC
At Rocky Mountain Community Church, we rejoice when our members get married. We embrace weddings as a ministry of the church. We desire to not only serve and guide you throughout the planning and culminating celebration, but also bring honor to our Lord Jesus Christ.
To be married at RMCC, we require that an RMCC pastor conduct pre-marital counseling (preferably before engagement) and perform the ceremony. For inquiries about a non-RMCC pastor’s involvement, please contact an RMCC pastor or the church director.
RMCC requires that every wedding held at RMCC must have a minimum pastoral wedding staff. The following information will clarify the role the church will play in your wedding.
RMCC will provide the following:
Building & Furnishings
The church building (sanctuary, fellowship hall, kitchen, classrooms, etc.) is available. We ask that Saturday evening receptions end by 10:30 p.m. to allow for Sunday morning set-up. Please schedule your wedding date with the church director as soon as possible.
The church will provide a ceremony coordinator for the wedding, which covers the rehearsal, events of the wedding day, and the ceremony. The purpose of this coordinator is to understand the interests of the bride and groom, the families, as well as RMCC’s policies, procedures, building use, etc. Meeting with this coordinator will clarify exact details about the help provided, what work you will provide, and our expectations of you when using the church facility. The person to fill this position is selected and scheduled by the bride and groom with the help of the church director. If you have a friend who can coordinate, we ask them to meet with the church director to understand their job description.
The church will provide a sound engineer for rehearsal and the ceremony. The person to fill this position is selected and scheduled by the bride and groom with the help of the church director and sound engineer.
The building manager will unlock and lock the building as well as provide some basic setting up and tearing down services.
The Bride and Groom will provide the following:
We also ask that you, as the bride and groom, provide help as well. With the help of your family, wedding party, friends, small group, etc., you will decorate, set up, and clean up for events held at the church. Again, meeting with the ceremony coordinator and church director will clarify exact details.
Musicians are paid professionals and will be hired by you. The musicians themselves or the ceremony coordinator will advise you on appropriate fees. If you'd like help thinking through your choices of music and how that fits with your venue and logistics, we encourage you to contact our music director for advice, even if you hire different musicians.
You will provide any food and beverages for all events either by professional catering or other arrangements. You will also provide needed servers.
1. Call a Pastor to arrange pre-marital counseling.
2. Call the Church Director to schedule your wedding on the church calendar, and begin contacting a ceremony coordinator, sound engineer, and building manager.
Weddings are a time-consuming and overwhelming process. RMCC desires that your wedding be one of joy and celebration. Working together, we can accomplish this.
