Congratulations on your engagement. We are glad that you are considering having your wedding ceremony at Ebenezer AME Church in Rahway.
It is our desire that anyone using our facilities for a wedding know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, as this must be a Christian ceremony. As a member of the connectional African Methodist Episcopal Church, Ebenezer upholds the theological conviction of our denomination, which is that marriage is a holy institute ordained by God, between one man and one woman. Therefore, the facilities and ministerial staff of Ebenezer AMEC cannot be used for or participate in civil unions or same-sex marriages. Additionally, we require that every couple being married by a member of our staff, participate in Christian counseling in preparation for a lifetime of commitment. The counseling should be scheduled for completion four or more weeks before the ceremony.
