Family Life
At Mount Airy we focus on the discipleship of each member of the family, which meets their unique emotional, physical, relational and spiritual growth needs, and which moves them toward a life of faith together in their marriage, family life, and in their witness in the church and community. Family Life Ministry is designed to build marriages and families toward God’s design and the definition and instruction in His Word, and toward a life-giving relationship with Jesus Christ that makes Him the Lord of marriage and family life every day for the Glory of God.

The wedding ceremony is a sacred service of the Christian Church. The first priority of this service is to be God-honoring. Because Mount Airy recognizes God’s role as creator, redeemer and sustainer and realizes the permanent significance of commitment in the vows to God, the wedding ceremony is planned as a service of worship.

The church expects that a couple married within the walls of Mount Airy believes in God. Furthermore, the church desires that God be the authority guiding their lives, now to be united in holy matrimony.

Every effort will be made to protect the theology of the wedding and its significant relationship to God. Secular celebrations such as musical selections or military exercises will be appropriate at the wedding reception, but will not be a part of the wedding service in the Sanctuary or Thomas Bain Chapel.

Mount Airy Baptist Church and its staff wish to extend every possible courtesy. Several procedures have been established regarding the use of the facility. For more information: contact Wedding Coordinator at 202.789.0640.
