Weddings and Receptions


Your promise.  Your memories.  A place for you.

Your Day

Congratulations!  Marriage is one of the most important decisions you will make in your lifetime.  As the prospective Bride and Groom, you will want to make your wedding day a day to remember, a day you can splendidly share with your family and friends.  Your wedding is a time of great promise, hope, joy and celebration; and we at Elim are pleased and honored to offer our Church Sanctuary and facilities to commemorate your very special occasion.

Wedding 1

Our Wish

“In sunshine and in shadow, in dancing and in song;
May heaven bless your union throughout your whole life long.”

Elim facilities include sanctuary, dressing rooms, fellowship hall with raised stage and newly remodeled kitchen.  As stewards of facilities set aside to serve God and community, we are honored to offer our services to assist the bride and groom on their wedding day.

Wedding 2

 Let us make your day complete.

A bit of old-country charm, quaintly located on a hilltop in the heart of Hockinson.  A warm and welcoming setting to consummate the joining of the hopeful couple as they each pledge before God to faithfully love and cherish each other from that day forward.  Following the ceremony, friends and families can  gather in the Church Fellowship Hall  to congratulate the couple and celebrate the happy union.

For over 125 years, Elim Lutheran Church has been blessed to be the steward of facilities that have been set aside to serve God and meet the needs of His children.  It is our pleasure to offer the use of these buildings and their contents to members and non-members.  We believe that God will be with you during your wedding experience here and we ask Him to bless your gathering and all those who participate in it.
