Congratulations on your engagement. All faiths and orientations are welcome at Mill Creek. We'd love to discuss your plans with you. Let us help make your wedding day a memory for you to cherish for years to come.
Our minister is wonderful. Pastor Mike Sutherland from Weight Watcher fame, can provide pre-marital counseling and custom vows. He can officiate at the weddings of any adults who wish to profess lifetime devotion to one another because we need more love in the world.
Please contact the Wedding Coordinator at Mill Creek Christian Church. 327-1673 Tuesday-Wednesday 9-2. Or leave a message anytime. This is a very picturesque place to be married. Mill Creek Christian Church Weddings are part of Bakersfield history. Ask any of your relatives, they will know someone that was married at First Christian Church. (We changed our name when Mill Creek was built.)
We'd like to be part of your special day. It can be small and intimate in our cozy chapel. Our chapel seats up to 100 guests comfortably. There are floor to ceiling windows with beautiful light filtering into the room. There is an attached Parlor for an onsite reception. Our church women can organize your reception using the cut glassware from our fully equipped kitchen in the Parlor. There is also a feminine pink Bride's Room perfect for those pre-wedding pictures of the Bride and her attendants and family.
If you dream of a grand, traditional ceremony, our Sanctuary holds 450 guests. There is a beautiful, cathedral-length center aisle, with custom stained glass on either side. The light streams into the room through tiny triangle windows. The acoustics in the Sanctuary are the best in town, perfect for the soloist song during the ceremony. We also have wonderfully talented singers who can sing exactly the songs you want.
Mill Creek has everything you may want for your special day. There are candelabras, stands, microphones, sound system, a grand piano, and an organ. There are several perfect photo spots in and around the church for those priceless photographic memories. There are many outside grassy areas, the chapel, the spectacularly lit Sanctuary, and other venues that lend themselves to brides and grooms imaginative pictures and videos.
Please call us, show contact info
. Ask for the Wedding Coordinator or any of our Wedding Committee folks. These coordinators are there for your every need. Our fees are reasonable and are all inclusive. Give us a call and come see the church and picture yourself there on one of the most important days of your life.
Mill Creek Christian Church/First Christian Church is only a short distance to many fantastic reception venues and we will gladly assist with any preparations. We also have a large Fellowship Hall that would be perfect for the after ceremony celebration. There is a beautiful crystal service set that is included with any Fellowship Rental.
