Wedding Policy (Click here for PDF version.)


Southside Baptist Church (SSBC) is a community of believers in the Living God, as revealed in the person of Jesus Christ. The mission of SSBC is to “build an inclusive community of grace” first in our own community and then in the world.


SSBC is an historic place of worship and outreach that should be treated with the respect and dignity that it deserves for all faith purposes, by those who come into the building to worship and those using the building to further ministries.


SSBC desires to render the best possible services to its members and friends in all their religious needs. The wedding ceremony is a service of worship, celebrates that relationship, and asks God’s blessing on it. Therefore every element of the service (dress, music, decorations, etc.) should contribute to an atmosphere of sacred worship.
