Community Life: Special Events

 

Weddings
Your wedding is a sacred celebration. Your plans for the service should reflect that fact and also align with the beliefs and worship practices of Ebenezer UCC. Careful planning will ensure that your wedding is meaningful to you, your family, and friends.

When scheduling weddings, Ebenezer UCC gives priority to church members and their children. A "church member," in this case, is someone who has participated regularly in Ebenezer activities for at least three months prior to the wedding date. However, we do weddings for nonmembers, also.

While our church has a large sanctuary, we also do small intimate weddings. Pastor Kevin performs a Christian wedding service, which will include your special requests. He can also offer suggestions and ideas to help make your ceremony unique.

Funerals
Funerals at Ebenezer UCC honor the person who has passed away and strive to offer hope to all, regardless of their circumstances. Pastor Kevin and the staff at Ebenezer UCC are sensitive to the needs of the family and friends who have lost loved ones and show them compassion, comfort, and encouragement.

Pastor Kevin is available to lead the service and provide spiritual counseling. A special room is available for onsite viewings prior to the funeral service. After the service, the social hall is available for receptions. Women of the Church will co-ordinate a luncheon after the funeral based on your requests.

To schedule a funeral at Ebenezer UCC, call the church's main office at 610-298-8000. Our offices are open Monday – Friday, 8:00 am – 12 noon. If you call on a night, weekend, or holiday, still call 610-298-8000, listen to the recorded message, and follow the directions for contacting the pastor on-call. That pastor will get the process started even though the church offices are closed.

Ebenezer Union Cemetery Association
