As Lutheran Christians, we recognize the marital union as belonging to God’s created order; it is not merely a contract between two individuals, the essential elements of which can be arbitrarily altered. Christian people seek also the fulfillment of their marital union in Christ as they grow in loving one another even as Christ has loved them, as they learn to forgive one another in the spirit of Christ, and as they draw upon the resources which the Lord of the church makes available to his people. The faith of Christian people affects, often decisively, every aspect of their marriage.
The devotion to one another and the unity named in Gen. 2:24 are of the essence of marriage. Ideally, the couple becomes to a harmony of personalities, belonging together, "no longer two but one" (Mark 10:7, 8; Ephesians 5:31). They become a paired unity—in sexual expression, in values and goals, and often in parenthood. (from elca.org)
Trinity is glad to host your wedding!
Our lovely sanctuary is capable of holding small-to medium-sized weddings. The basement parish hall is cozy and can hold enough tables to seat up to 75 people. A small kitchen adjoins the hall. Pastor Yingst offers pre-marital counseling and will help you plan your wedding service.
Trinity is LGBTQ friendly!
Because Vermont is a Gay-Marriage state, we are legally able to marry same-gender couples. We also have the blessing from our parent church body, the New England Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America to do so! Pastor Yingst can help you tailor your service to reflect your unique situation.
