Weddings are days of special celebration in the lives of couples and in the life of the Christian Church. In our tradition, we believe that “marriage is a gift from God, intended for the joy and mutual strength of those who enter it and for the well-being of the whole human family” (ELW 286). The beginning of a marriage is certainly a cause for celebration—and for worship.
At Faith Lutheran Church, we recognize the wedding of two people as an act of worship. In keeping with this understanding of “wedding as worship,” wedding services here at Faith are in harmony with the principles of Christian worship and officiated by a pastor. Planning a wedding service—and preparing for the commitments of marriage—does take time; we ask that all our pre-marriage couples begin the process of marriage preparation at least months prior to the wedding date.
If you are a member of Faith Lutheran Church and are interested in being married, please contact our church office to check if a specific date is available at 952-442-2101.
A wedding packet of information can be picked up to answer many of your questions.
A $150.00 deposit is needed to hold the wedding date.
