Plan A Wedding
Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding!
We are pleased that you have chosen Faith † Journey Lutheran Church as the place to start your marriage. We want each couple to have a beautiful wedding, but also a rich and healthy marriage relationship that will last for a lifetime.
We want to help you plan a wedding and ceremony with Christ at the center. A wedding is a worship service that celebrates the love of God and our love for each other.
May God bless you and your relationship with God and each other, The Pastors and Staff of Faith † Journey Lutheran Church
Planning a Wedding
Now that you have made the decision to be married, it is important that every possible step be taken to ensure that you not only have a beautiful and meaningful wedding ceremony, but also a rich and healthy marriage relationship. We pray that you will allow Jesus Christ to dwell with you so that you will experience all that God has for you as you build your marriage with God as the foundation.
Your wedding day is one of the most important occasions in your life, and we are pleased that God has led you to include the church in your plans. The wedding service is an event that will go by all too quickly; it will be a time to praise God, who is the source of all love. Your marriage, we pray, will last a lifetime. It is important, therefore, for you to have an intentional time to plan both for the wedding service and for the life-long commitment that you are making to each other. It is expected that every couple who wishes to be married at Faith † Journey attend a pre-marriage retreat.
If you are interested in having a wedding at Faith † Journey, or would like one of our pastors to officiate at your wedding, please contact Peggy Bernard to discuss your specific request. Peggy can be reached 9:00AM – 4:00PM, Monday – Thursday and 9:00AM – 1:00PM, Friday in the church office, 701.282.3309.
The goal of Faith † Journey is to make your wedding a joyful and beautiful event. We hope and pray that your wedding day will be one of the happiest days of your life and that you will include God as you begin this new journey together.
As you go on your way, may God go with you…
May He go before you to show you the way,
May He go behind you to encourage you,
Beside you to befriend you,
Above you to watch over you,
Within you to give you peace!
