Expressions of faith and unity in the love of Christ

The renewal of vows ceremony is provided for couples who desire to share their marriage vows and promises again. Often one renews vows on special occasions such as anniversaries or during a visit to Paris. A renewal service is available after a couple has been married for at least 2 years. Usually the renewal services are without music, though music can be arranged if it is desired.

The scheduling and arrangements for a renewal of vow service when you are in Paris are made with our wedding coordinator. After a reservation is made, the pastor in charge of weddings (the Visitng Pastor) will write to the couple and send them a copy of the service. The couple can review the service and then write back to the pastor if there any questions or suggestions you may have. Often only the couples come for the service, but family members and other guests are certainly welcome.

The sanctuary is reserved for one hour for these services. The ceremony itself will last about 20 to 30 minutes. The couple will meet with the pastor for a few minutes prior to the beginning of the service. This provides an opportunity to discuss the service and for the couple and the pastor to get acquainted. Please contact the wedding coordinator for your requests.

To discuss arrangements for your vow renewal, please contact the ACP Wedding Coordinator.

Marriage Vow Renewals and Weddings

Yes, the pandemic still casts a shadow and sets limits. 

Nevertheless … the Wedding Ministry of the American Church in Paris is finding new ways to begin again … with online wedding blessing ceremonies from the sanctuary of the American Church on Zoom.

As the Wedding Ministry resumes, we are offering to members of ACP the opportunity to renew your marriage vows live  from the ACP sanctuary on Zoom as the church’s free gift to you during the months of March  and April 2021.
