Statement of Policy: Heartland holds the celebration of joining a couple together in holy matrimony as a sacred blessing. The Policies stated here are to ensure the couple of a memorable day and to honor GOD within the ceremony.
1. Church Requirements
A) A minimum three-month notice to our Senior Pastor & Staff for the wedding date and rehearsal is required. Early planning can ensure you the availability of the date selected.
B) All weddings will be scheduled so that they do not conflict with church services or special church events. Saturday weddings must be scheduled no later than 3pm. The church sanctuary and kitchen can be made available in coordination with the wedding. The details will be channeled through the church office. The Senior Pastor should be consulted if the chosen minister is not a member of this church so that he can extend an invitation to the guest minister.
C) Music used in the ceremony should reflect the sacredness of the wedding. Musicians using the church’s sound equipment will need to be cleared through the church office or the officiating Pastor.
D) Decorations and florals are the responsibility of the wedding party. We ask that no tacks, pins, nails, or glue be fastened to the furniture or building and that all items be removed after the wedding service. All candles must be dripless. Our church staff or officiating Pastor will be available for you to make the arrangements for a time to come in and prepare the sanctuary.
E) Parking is limited around the church. We require that you honor the signs and neighbor’s rights.
2. Service & Facility Fees
$50 Sound Technician $250 for non-members use of church

There is not a set fee for the services of a minister; however, an honorarium given should be commensurate with the fees of other services.
