My son is getting married in November and we’re trying to find a place here in Baker County to have the ceremony. He called a few churches, but they want $800 to $1500 to rent the church, not counting the reception.
This upsets me. My father started a church in Baker County 40 years ago, and has helped a lot of churches in this area. He, Bro. Leslie Thomas, and many other preachers worked together and did a lot of good in this community, and I never knew of them charging for someone to have a wedding in their church.The Christian Fellowship Temple wants $800, First Baptist Church of Glen (where I was married 27 years ago without charge and where my husband Tommy helped build the church) wants $1500.
I don’t see where an hour-long ceremony can cost this much. I’m not asking for a handout, but I also don’t feel it is right.
They call themselves Christians? May God help them.
