Redeemer Lutheran Church is a wonderful place to have a wedding ceremony. Redeemer welcomes the celebration of marriages for all couples, members and non-members, regardless of sexual orientation. Questions regarding availability, cost, and wedding guidelines should be directed to the church office.
The pastor of Redeemer will preside at Christian wedding ceremonies after a couple has completed pre-marital counseling either with the pastor or another approved counselor. Redeemer’s Music Director will perform at all weddings unless special arrangements have been made with them in advance. Redeemer also provides wedding hosts who make sure the ceremony runs smoothly.
