Scripture Readings

  • You may select from one to three scripture readings for your ceremony.
  • If you chose not to make any selections, the Pastor will select on your behalf.

  • You may invite someone to read scripture for your ceremony.  If you do not have someone you’d like to read for you, please ask the Pastor to do so.
