Congratulations on your engagement!
With the exception of your relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ, this is the beginning of the most important relationship you will ever have – your marriage. At The Purple Door Church, your wedding ceremony will be a sacred service of great and lasting spiritual significance and a time of joy for you, your wedding party, and guests.
The vast majority of our weddings are held in the sanctuary, but we do work with couples if they prefer another location, an outdoor venue, or a destination wedding.
As a general rule, wedding are only available to our congregational members. We do make exceptions to this rule, for special circumstances. If you would like to be married at St. John but are not a member, do not be afraid to ask.
Scheduling a Wedding:
The first step is to select an open date on the church calendar by contacting. Contact Pastor Jeff Gramza at: firstname.lastname@example.org or (419) 586-2332 to schedule the wedding.
Online Marriage Survey:
All couples getting married at St. John will be asked to take an online marriage survey called “Prepare Enrich.” To do this, please e-mail the pastor, the first name and individual e-mail address for the bride and groom. The bride and groom will complete the survey separately. After completing the survey, you will get together a few times with the pastor to go over your results and help identify areas of strength and areas of potential growth in your marriage.
Meeting with the Pastor:
You will meet with the pastor a few times to custom create your wedding ceremony. This will provide time to build a relationship. Any special requests or anything “out of the ordinary” should be discussed with the pastor, musicians, and wedding coordinator well in advance of your ceremony so proper arrangements can be made.
