Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to be a member of Immanuel to have my wedding at the church? 

You do NOT need to be a member! Our Pastors would love to meet you and chat about having your wedding here at Immanuel! Please join us on a Sunday morning and introduce yourself to Pastor Craig Bickel or Pastor Thomas Gustafson! We do have some requirements for those who are not members given by our Lay Ministers. 1. The couple must attend our 12-week Discovery Class before the wedding. 2. If the couple would like someone other than the Pastors of Immanuel to perform the ceremony, the Pastor must be part of the LCMS.

I am a member of Immanuel. Is there anything I have to do to have my wedding at Immanuel? 

All couples married at Immanuel must have premarital counseling with the Pastor that is performing the ceremony.

Call the office! Jillian Pruitt (Administrative Assistant) is more than happy to help you with that! Once you have confirmed that the date is available, a $100 deposit is required to save the date on the calendar! (This will go toward the final non-refundable cost.)
