Weddings at Trinity
How do we schedule a wedding at Trinity?
A couple may call the church office at (309) 828-6265 to first inquire whether the wedding date is available on the church's and pastor's calendars. If the couple is active in worship at Trinity, an appointment will be made with a pastor at which time he will determine whether a Christian marriage can be performed at Trinity.
If the couple has not been regularly active in worship, they should worship four times and indicate this on an attendance card located in each pew. After the worship expectation is met, they may call the church office for an appointment with a pastor.
Does Trinity marry non-members?
Trinity indeed marries non-members as long as the couple is active in worship and is seeking a church home. Non-members often enroll in our New Member Classes, either before or after the wedding occurs, and assimilate as members into the life of the congregation. A Trinity pastor (or pastor of a sister LCMS congregation) must be the clergy to perform weddings at Trinity.
Trinity does not rent out its facilities for unaffiliated weddings.
Are there wedding fees?
Trinity does have a fee schedule for weddings. Please contact the church office for current fees.
