First things first... Congratulations on your upcoming marriage!
Marriage is a holy union which is intended to last a lifetime. It is an honor to assist couples with the planning of not only their marriage ceremony but also their life together.
To that end, the Pastor provides pre-marriage counseling which allows for conversation that focuses on the couples' relationship strengths and possible growth areas. It is understood that couples will complete these four sessions with the Pastor prior to the wedding.
We understand the marriage ceremony to be a worship experience during which we call upon the presence of God, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit to sustain the marriage relationship. The service itself will utilize the wording approved by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, including prayers and the scripture chosen by the couple.
While we welcome officiating at weddings for both members and non-members of St. Luke's; it is our hope that all couples might attend Sunday worship and know the joy of praising God and receiving his grace in the midst of a group of other believers.
