Wedding at St. Andrew's Lutheran Church
So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God blessed them..
When a couple desides to get married in the church they want to ask for God's blessing and protection over their marriage. Our church wants to be there to encourage couples to take the wonderful step into this lifelong commitment; Christian marriage. You can have a small intimate ceremony or even a wedding of 200 people at St. Andrew's. The most common places for the ceremony are homes, beaches, pavilions, and other party venues. The Pastor is conpensated for performing the ceremony and also in case there are travel expences.
Place me like a seal over your heart, like seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death...It burns lie a blazing fire, like a mighty flame. Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot sweep it away.
Renewing the vows
Our Pastor also performs the vow renewing ceremonies. This ceremony isn't official. It is a celebration where we thank God for the marriage, the spouse, the love, and also ask His blessing for all the years to come.
The ceremony can be held at home, at the beach, or any other special place important for the couple. The compensation for the Pastor is the same as it is for performing a wedding ceremony.
