Marriage is the sacred covenant reflecting Christ’s covenant with the church. Marriage vows specify how the couple will live as disciples of Jesus Christ in the context of their relationship with each other. In a Christian marriage, the bride and groom enter into union with each other through the grace of Jesus Christ. UMCL requires all couples to participate in a series of counseling sessions with our pastors before we commit to performing services.
All couples who wish to join together in this sacred covenant are welcome. For more information and to schedule time with a pastor, call 847-362-2112.
