You’re getting married? Congratulations!
A wedding is a joyous celebration where God’s blessing, which strengthens and sustains a couple in marriage, is proclaimed. Trinity Lutheran Church would be pleased to help make your day a blessed and memorable one.
A lot of thought and planning goes into ensuring your wedding goes smoothly and that your life together afterwards continues to be filled with love and happiness. In the Lutheran tradition, the Rite of Marriage is a worship service and the focus is on God and His gifts to us. In consultation with Pastor and our Music Director, you can choose the music and musicians, the readings from Scripture and personalize your vows.
It is hoped that couples intending to marry at Trinity would also choose it as their church home or would already be actively involved in another faith community. Every couple needs the emotional and spiritual support of a community beyond family and friends; a church home will be important in the years ahead for support through the inevitable challenges that arise in a marriage. Being part of a church community that is welcoming and makes you feel comfortable will encourage you to be actively involved and nurtured in faith.
Preparation for your wedding begins by first choosing a tentative date and time. Contact our office coordinator to book an appointment with Pastor, have a look at our sanctuary and facilities and discuss your plans and our fees.
We look forward to seeing you.
