Congratulations on your engagement!
We are delighted that you are considering having your wedding at Hope Lutheran Church or asking our Pastor to officiate at your wedding ceremony. Weddings are joyous, meaningful, and worshipful occasions.
Though weddings are social and legal events, our focus is on the spiritual union that is being celebrated. You do not need to be a member of Hope Lutheran Church to schedule your wedding here or ask our Pastor to officiate at your wedding.
If you are not a member, we invite you to attend a worship service. Feel free to introduce yourself to the pastor following the service and let him know you are engaged and looking for a pastor to officiate at your wedding and possibly wanting to use Hope Lutheran Church.
All couples married by our Pastor must agree to premarital counseling. Usually there are three sessions and these sessions need to be completed a few weeks prior to the wedding ceremony. Pastor Steve uses both the Myer Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the Prepare Premarital inventory. Each pre-marital session usually lasts about 90 minutes.
If you are interested in having your wedding at Hope Lutheran Church or have our pastor officiate at your wedding at another venue, please call or email our church office for more information on our wedding policies and fees and to check the availability of your wedding date.
