We believe that marriage is a holy and sacred gift from God to be held in honor by all.  Therefore, when the Church is asked to perform the Rite of Marriage, it does so in the awareness that the couple is seeking the blessing of God upon their life together.  The joy of the marriage ceremony is reflected in the prayers, praise, and thanksgiving of those who come together for this occasion.  The following information is provided to assist in making your wedding a beautiful and joyful celebration, which will reflect upon the sanctity of the marriage covenant.

What's Included in a Wedding at Concordia?

·       Use of the Sanctuary on the day preceding the ceremony for rehearsal.  Use of the Sanctuary as well as other designated rooms on the day of the ceremony.  The time frame and duration for building use will be determined when the couple meets with the wedding consultant and/or pastor. 

·       Our pastor will meet with the couple prior to the ceremony, to become acquainted with the couple and to review the service and the vows.  This offers time to develop a relationship that will be a part of the ceremony at which he officiates.  The pastor will also provide pre-marriage counseling with the couple (no group sessions).

·       Assistance of the Wedding Consultant during scheduling and planning, coordination of the ceremony at the rehearsal, and assistance and guidance at the wedding ceremony.

·       Clean-up and operation of the sound system, including production of a video of the ceremony.

·       Having an organist and/or soloist is optional and can be decided upon by the couple as the ceremony is planned.


Concordia Lutheran Church of Lakewood, CO is a member of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS).  The LCMS, in Convention in 1998, affirmed, on the basis of Scripture, that marriage is the lifelong union of one man and one woman.  As such, Concordia Lutheran Church, as a member of the LCMS, only conducts marriages that join one man and one woman who intend to be joined for their mutual lifetime. (Genesis 2:2-24; Matthew 19:5-6).
