Thank you for researching Grace Lutheran Church concerning your wedding plans. We would be honored to serve in one of the most meaning-filled moments of your life.
You should know that we take seriously the role we play in this important process. Marriage is a gift from God. Jesus taught His disciples about marriage and throughout the New Testament marriage is described as a way for Christians to model the love Jesus has for His Church. This faithful lifetime commitment as husband and wife is one of the most important ways we can respond to the relationship we have with our Lord Jesus Christ.
Grace uses a dynamic and powerful program to assist engaged couples as they prepare for a life together in marriage. This program, The Prepare and Enrich Marriage Counseling Program, involves the engaged couple participating in four counseling sessions. At the conclusion, the couple will meet with the pastor to finalize the details of the wedding ceremony.
A Christian Wedding is a worship service. It is not a show or stage production. We have great flexibility in meeting your specific needs as a couple to make your wedding a reflection of your unique love. However, we do not lose sight of the greater truth that we come together to worship the One who is the author of your love, Jesus Christ.
It is important for you to know that each couple must work closely with our wedding hostess. She assists the Pastors and is the primary contact persons for working out the details of this worship service. We encourage you to consider having our videographer produce your wedding DVD. He will beautifully capture your special moment and will provide a great value. Our Hope Hall building and our kitchen make hosting your wedding reception close and easy.
Contact the church office to discuss any questions, to receive the paperwork and set up the initial appointment with the pastor.
