God bless you as you prepare for your wedding!
Your wedding is a sacred occasion. Marriage has been "instituted by God, blessed by our Lord Jesus Christ, and is to be held in honor by everyone."
Arranging the Wedding Date
Those who plan to be married at Zion must consult first with the Pastor about the nature of marriage and the form of the marriage service. The date and time of the marriage must be approved by the officiating minister before the wedding can be announced. Weddings and receptions must be scheduled at a time which will assure that the church building is vacated by 10:00 P.M.
The Pastor of Zion Lutheran Church will officiate the wedding.
The Pastor meets with the wedding couple at least two times and both meetings being at least one month before the wedding date. The first meeting is a time to get acquainted and learn about the couple and their wedding plans. Additionally the couples email addresses will be added to an online resource "Prepare and Enrich."
The site requires a one time fee of $35.00. After the couple answers the questions from "Prepare and Enrich" they will have a second meeting with Pastor to discuss the findings from that resource.
