Weddings

There is not a prettier setting for your special day than the one here at Church by the Sea. Our beautiful sanctuary holds 360 people, and there are amazing photo opportunities in and around the building. To make it perfect, the church is only steps away from the magnificent Gulf of Mexico, where you and your wedding party may take breathtaking beach-side photos after the ceremony!

While you do not have to be a member to have your wedding in this lovely church, there are several elements that will help make your special day a spiritual one, including counseling sessions and Ceremony by Senior Pastor; wedding assistant at both the rehearsal and wedding day; use of the church sanctuary and bride room; rehearsal the evening before; organist and clean-up. We would love to be a part of one of the most important days of your life!
