Special Services

At Niantic Community Church we believe that God is present in every moment, particularly those of great joy and great sorrow, and we see it as a privilege to accompany families in some of life’s tenderest times. We will rejoice with you when you are rejoicing, and we will weep with you when you are weeping.

Weddings

Marriage is a holy union between two persons who love each other, witnessed by the community. At Niantic Community Church, our celebration of marriage is open to all. We are an Open, Affirming, Reconciling congregation that believes God blesses all loving, committed unions.

Our pastor will be glad to work with you to prepare for marriage and to plan a ceremony that celebrates the covenant you are making with one another, with your community, and with God. We do expect that all couples who are wed at Niantic Community Church will go through a process of premarital counseling.

Funerals & Memorials

During difficult times of loss, Niantic Community Church offers a variety of resources. We will walk with you even through the valley of the shadow of death, offering support, guidance, and Christ’s love.

Funeral services (where the body is present) and memorial services (where the body is not present) provide an opportunity to thank God for the life of the person who has died, to offer this loved one to God’s eternal care and keeping, and to proclaim again God’s promise that death will not have the last word. These services typically include words of remembrance, pastoral words, scripture readings, prayers, and hymns. Our pastor will be glad to work with you to plan a funeral or memorial service that suits your loved one. In addition to the service, Niantic Community Church can also host visiting hours and/or receptions.
