We believe that marriage is a gift from God, and a way of intentionally living a deep relationship with your spouse and Jesus Christ. This begins with a marriage ceremony in which Christ is the center.
Wedding ceremonies are, first and foremost, a worship service, which celebrates your marriage. The church plans wedding ceremonies to reflect God’s love for us, and your love for each other, with input from the couple.
Holy Trinity Lutheran Church believes in marriage equality. Any couple that wishes to be in a committed, monogamous, lifelong relationship is welcome to be married here. Church membership is not required.
You must follow the instructions listed by the State of Nebraska and Cheyenne County. Please bring your marriage license and give it to your officiating pastor during the rehearsal. The wedding cannot take place without this document. Signing takes place immediately after the recessional. Witnesses must be at least 18 years of age.
Any unpaid “Contract” fees must be paid in full with one check and received in the church office no later than 90 days prior to the wedding. Please refer to the church contract for additional details.
It is the practice at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church for the officiating pastor to meet with couples before their wedding day. The initial visit provides the pastor and the couple an opportunity to get to know each other and discuss the multitude of questions couples often have when planning a wedding. The subsequent pastoral meeting takes place a month or two before the wedding. At this meeting, the order of service is finalized, the rehearsal is scheduled, and last-minute questions are covered. Couples may fulfill their pre-marriage counseling requirement in a small variety of ways, and we encourage you to contact us to discuss this further!
Here at Holy Trinity, we believe that we all need healing, and to be made whole through the love of God.
We are excited to grow as a congregation, and invite you to join us as we do God’s work in Christ’s name for the life of the world.
