Dear Hattie and Dick,
On the 1900 census column 10 asks for the number of years of present marriage. Since divorce was kind of rare in 1900, it's likely to be a number you can use to calculate the year of marriage.
Church records are filed by date, not name, so unless you have a good estimate of the date of a marriage, the Church probably can't find the record. The records are in large registries (sort of like legers) and have to be searched by hand. So your first job is to get a viable date. You can probably access Ancestry for free at your public library. Ancestry's website has all the censuses.
