Christian Marriage At MLC
A wedding is a joyful occasion in a family's life. During this sacred worship service, a new family unit is created. The Lutheran-Christian couple pray that God, who is already the foundation and guide of their lives as individuals, will bless their union and become a part of their married life and family forever. The marital union is indeed an "excellent mystery."
"There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage." Martin Luther

A couple who wish Pastor Larry to officiate at their wedding must participate in a premarital course.
It is important to confirm Pastor Larry's availability and, if you wish to be married at MLC, that of the church on your preferred rehearsal and wedding dates before you book a wedding and/or reception venue, etc., and pay non-refundable deposits. Right now we are tentatively scheduling weddings for 2021, but based on the situation with COVID-19, that could change. To confirm Pastor's and the church's availability and to set up your counseling sessions, you may contact Pastor at:
Please note: Weddings are not scheduled at MLC during Lent and Holy Week, and Pastor is not available to celebrate a wedding at another venue during that time. Lent 2021: Ash Wednesday, February 17-Holy Saturday, April 3.
