    Our council passed a policy stating that we consider a wedding to be a service of worship; therefore, no wedding may occur on our properties that violate our denomination’s doctrinal standards concerning marriage. The COG has a clearly written statement of faith concerning our beliefs about both the sinfulness of homosexual practice and the requirement that marriage be a lifelong union of one biological male and one biological female, and that such gender is determined and permanently set by God from birth.

    Secondly, since a wedding is considered a worship service, no one may officiate/perform a wedding ceremony on our properties without the invitation of our senior pastor or written permission of our administrative bishop.

    Thirdly, since marriage is a “holy estate which is not to entered into lightly or unadvisedly”, no couple may be married on our properties without completing a pre-marital counseling course with our senior pastor or one whom he appoints.

    Would you mind posting the text of theses statements here pls? One workaround other pastors have found useful is a prescribed insurance policy by Brotherhood Mutual who unlike most denominations out there has actually handled gay-wedding lawsuits on church properties
