First Lutheran Church of Brainerd, MN

An invaluable resource for couples preparing for marriage at First Lutheran is our shared Lakes Area Lutheran Pre-Marriage Retreat. This retreat is a joint effort between all ELCA churches in the Lakes Area and, as such, is a part of all congregations' pre-marriage preparation. 

As soon as you book your wedding at FLC, you are asked to go to the link below and register for the next pre-marriage retreat. The retreat  usually runs from 9:30am-6:00pm and usually take place on a Saturday. Couples are then encouraged to attend worship the following (the next day) Sunday. The retreat is held twice annually and takes place at one of our Brainerd-Baxter ELCA churches.
