wedding1Marriage is God's provision for His earthly kingdom, how He governs and blesses all human societies, including people who do not know Him. Marriage is God starting a family. In the Lutheran understanding, marriage is not a sacrament—which would restrict it to just Christians—but it has been established by God in His very creation of human beings (Gen. 2:18–25).

Marriage and families belong to God's civil order. God calls men and women into their marriages, and He works through them to bless each other. They become "one flesh." God is the one who joined them together, as Jesus Himself explains: "What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate" (Matt. 19:5–6).

St. Matthew is pleased to join couples in marriage and extends their support of marriage upon those who are members and non-members. Since marriage is seen as a serious commitment, it should not be taken lightly. For this reason, the Pastor will meet with couple and prepare them for this commitment. Please call or email the church office for more information and to schedule an appointment.
