Wedding & Pre-Marriage

We want to be helpful in your preparation for marriage and the planning of your wedding.

Fill out our bride and groom personal questionnaire.

Once these forms are completed, please email them to our church office at , or contact our church office at (507) 282-5569.

First step

The first step in getting married at Christ Community Church is to complete a Bride and Groom Personal Questionnaire (see above link). This is given to the pastor or turned in to the church office. Office hours are 8:30-4:30 M-F. You also can mail the forms to 4400 55th St. NW, Rochester, MN  55901. After receiving the forms, the pastor will then meet with you to discuss your upcoming marriage.

 Prerequisites for wedding approval

Premarital preparation: Couples will be expected to complete a minimum of 10 hours of premarital preparation offered through Christ Community.
Marriage License: The state of Minnesota provides a $40 reduction in the marriage license fee to couples who complete a minimum of 12 hours of premarital education. This may be a combination of premarital sessions, mentoring with a couple, or attending a marriage seminar or class. Information on additional marriage education may be requested from your pastor in order to fulfill the 12 hours.
