Weddings at Bethlehem

Marriage is designed by God to be a parable of his awesome love for his people. That's why we take marriage and preparation for marriage so seriously at Bethlehem. We want you to experience the profound joy that comes from a God-centered marriage and want to do everything we can to make this process as easy as possible.

Every couple interested in having their wedding or wedding reception at Bethlehem should submit a Wedding Request Form. Once you have submitted the form, you will be contacted for confirmation. 

You should know:

  • We have several pastors available to perform weddings.
  • Weddings at Bethlehem must align with our Church Covenant and Relational Commitments.
  • We do require pre-marital counseling, which may be done by a Bethlehem pastor or another qualified counselor.
  • If someone other than a Bethlehem pastor performs the ceremony, the couple must first meet with a Bethlehem pastor who will sponsor the ceremony in our building.
  • Part of the fee charged for being married at Bethlehem covers a Wedding Coordinator, who will meet with you, help to plan the ceremony as needed, and serve as a reference point for the details of your ceremony.
  • Due to the large number of events at Bethlehem we place some limitations on wedding times, such as no later than a 1pm start time on Saturdays. We also primarily limit weddings to people who are part of the Bethlehem community.
  • If you wish to have your reception or rehearsal dinner at Bethlehem you will need to contact our Kitchen Coordinator.

Your request will be received by Lynda Hansen, our wedding point person. She will gather pertinent information and connect you with those who can help with other details.
