BrideDJ:   Since ceremonies in a church are generally open to the public, perhaps you could invite those members of the congregation that you would like to attend the reception after – as a standard wedding invitation would.  

I assume a notice of the ceremony will be posted in the church bulletin, and those who want to attend the ceremony will.

BrideDJ:  I would just place the invitation to the ceremony in the bulletin.

I  think you would know the names of the church members that you would like to invite to the reception. You can send them regular invitations.

I think place a request with whoever does church announcements and/or place a notice of sorts on the bulletin board.
