The Best of the Tradition With a Heart for Evangelism and Discipleship

We do understand that there are unique situations where those who are not members of a congregation may wish to use its facilities for a wedding. If you are in such a unique situation (both parties are from Houston, but have moved away, for example), give us a call and we will see if we can work something out. 

To learn more about joining First Lutheran, the best place to start is by visiting on Sunday morning and speak with Pastor McClanahan. You can contact him anytime via email at emc2 at

Go to our galleries page to see pictures of past weddings, but note that some of these pictures were before the recent renovation and the installation of the new organ. This is a pdf that details our event parking situation and includes directions. 

Weddings at First Lutheran

​First Lutheran is a beautiful place for a wedding. With a long center aisle and classical architecture, it is a wonderful setting for a holy service and once-in-a-lifetime memories. As church membership and Christian discipleship are integral to a Christian marriage, Christian couples are encouraged to marry where they hold their membership. Keeping in this tradition, First Lutheran emphasizes weddings for members of this congregation. This insures that the couple to be married shares their joy not only with their family and friends, but also with their brothers and sisters in Christ.
