Pastoral Care

 

WEDDINGS

Marriage is a God-ordained institution, and a covenant commitment reflecting God’s unconditional faithfulness to mankind throughout all ages. We believe that marriage is for one man and one woman for an entire lifetime. As we help you enter into the oneness of marriage, we require pre-marital counseling for anyone married by a Venture pastor. This can be accomplished by attending one of the three Engaged Couples Seminars offered each year or by making special arrangements with the officiating pastor. Due to space and schedule limitations, we can only perform weddings for members of our church community.

MEMORIAL SERVICES

It's our desire to provide assistance to church families during their time of loss. Members have the option of using our facility to hold the memorial service for their loved one at no cost. We make every effort to accommodate your scheduling request, however we must take into consideration the church and school calendars. 

What kind of support does Venture provide?

Venture's staff desires to support your efforts to honor your loved one and to acknowledge the significance and meaning of the person who has had such impact in your family’s life. Therefore, we provide the following:

  • A staff member to guide you through the process of developing a meaningful memorial program that supports and honors your loved one’s memory. We offer a list of “Questions to ask when preparing a Memorial Service” that will aid in helping to formulate the program as well as technical and custodial support.
  • Church members will receive hospitality support for the reception following the ceremony, if requested.
  • Venture will assign a member of the Ministerial staff to officiate, if requested.
