Christian marriage is a union of persons which begins at the altar and in which both members maintain a faithful growing relationship, not only with one another, but with the Church of Christ and His world. We are glad you are considering McFarland Lutheran Church for your wedding.
The Christian wedding is an act of worship. The Christian wedding is a ceremony in which two Christians come together to offer special thanks and praise to God and to ask God’s blessing upon their life together.
As a couple you have a particular reason for thanks and praise. God will unite you in marriage and it is God who has given you an example of perfect marriage in the relationship between Christ and His Church.
Because the service of marriage in the Christian Church is a worship service first, and a ceremony second, it is important that everything be done with a serious mind and according to God’s will.
Ordinarily weddings in this congregation are for baptized and confirmed members of the Christian Church, whose intentions are to participate in the life of the Lutheran Church. Although non-members are welcome to be married at McFarland Lutheran Church, preference for dates, time, and counseling arrangements will be given to congregational members.
