The good news is that it is months from now.

Are you familiar with the church?  How much have you done with on and off camera flash?

Are you shooting the portraits at/near the alter, or is there a room or basement that will be used?  Oh, I see you said you guess inside near the alter,…  First step might be a visit to the church to see what the options and requirements are.

No time at the moment, but I think YouTube videos about weddings in church may be worthwhile.  At least you have camera bodies that can use higher ISO values without trouble.  For group shots, fast lenses are not much help because you will need f/8 or so to get DOF.
