Weddings

Marriage is a beautiful piece of God’s creation, and it is an important ministry of Saint John Evangelical Lutheran Church. We read Jesus’ words in the Gospel of Mark where he says, “from the beginning of creation, 'God made them male and female.'  'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate."  (Mark 10:6-9).  As the Church today we follow this pattern of celebrating, strengthening and supporting Christian Marriage.  We are here to work with you to make your wedding day a delight and to support you in your life together.  In Christian love we will work with you both as you get ready for this major life event.  In preparation for your wedding and for your married life we work on three priorities.  These are:

                Building up your relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ

                Building up your relationship with each other

                Helping you have a wonderful wedding day

If you would like more information about the wedding ministry of St. John please contact  the church office.  We will be glad to send you a copy of our wedding guidelines (The Wedding Book) which will answer more of your questions.  The Wedding Book is meant to explain the framework and guidelines for how you, the couple, and we, the congregation, will work hand in hand in ministry in preparation for your married life and your wedding day.  We truly care about your future life together in Christian marriage.
