Weddings at National City Christian Church
One of the most wonderful sacred rites celebrated in the church is that of Christian marriage. Marriage is a gift from God given to all humanity for the well-being and betterment of the entire human family. It is a sacred covenant through which two people are called by God to live their lives in unity and love. In a service of Christian marriage, a lifelong commitment is made by a couple (male/female, male/male, female/female) to each other, publicly witnessed and acknowledged by those who attend the ceremony and sealed and blessed by an ordained minister.
National City Christian Church is honored and blessed to have couples from all backgrounds consider holding their wedding (or commitment) ceremony in our historic and inspiring sanctuary. Imagine heralding the beginning of your married lives with music from our magnificent pipe organ, surrounded by pews in which United States Presidents have sat, and vows being said in one of the most majestic churches – right here in the heart of Washington, DC. Whether you’re planning a large or small wedding, or a single-language or bilingual ceremony – we would welcome you.
