Pre-marital Marriage counseling

Wedding ceremonies at First Lutheran Church are

conducted by our Pastor. Prior to the wedding

you will need to contact the pastor’s administrative

assistant for premarital counseling. It is an expectation

that each couple will attend a minimum of one

premarital counseling session with the pastor.
A visiting pastor may share in the ceremony upon

agreement with our Pastor. Upon written request,

an outside Christian pastor may officiate. Please

contact the Pastor with questions or for clarification.
