Helpful information for planning a wedding worship service

Restrictions: First Lutheran Church only allows weddings for members and close family members.

Setting the Date: We ask that you set the date for your wedding as early as possible. We will not schedule a wedding no later than four months prior.

The Pastor: The Pastor will meet with both the bride and groom no less than two months prior to your wedding date. A minimum of four sessions will be held. We talk about marriage, relationships, family of origin issues, and of course, preparation for the ceremony.

Wedding Coordinator: Our Wedding Coordinator is the liaison between First Lutheran Church and the bridal party. This person has in-depth knowledge of Lutheran wedding worship services, including the order of worship, acceptable music, liturgy, altar and sanctuary decor, as well as ways of customizing the worship service to fit you. The Wedding Coordinator is glad to meet with your wedding planner.

General Information: The sanctuary is traditionally inspired. 18 pews on each side of a center aisle (36 pews total); accommodating approximately 335 worshipers.

Traditional pipe organ and an upright piano in the back, above the pews, in the choir loft.

Baby grand piano at the front of the sanctuary.

Small inner narthex directly off the sanctuary, and a large outer narthex leading from the front doors for greeting guests.

Large Fellowship Hall in the lower level, for large receptions.

Alcoholic beverages are not permitted to be served or consumed any place in the Church.

We will work with a wedding planner of your choice to coordinate all the aspects of the wedding.

We will publish a bulletin (order of service). If you are submitting information to be printed in the bulletin, please do so in WORD format.

We will provide altar (Flower set up, Holy Communion setup) and usher services before, during, and immediately following the service.
