New Member Class
Periodically we offer a class for those interested in uniting with our church. The class is scheduled on two consecutive Sunday afternoons. On the third Sunday morning during worship, new members are introduced to the congregation. The next scheduled classes will be as follows:
Sunday, September 17, 2017, 4:00– 7:00 p.m.
Class meets with the pastors and staff to get acquainted, learn about our church and what membership means, and tour our building. A light supper is provided and childcare is available. Please make a reservation by Sept. 13 so we can plan on food and childcare.
Sunday, September 24, 2017, 4:00 – 5:00 p.m.
Class meets informally at a “tea” (light refreshments) with our Session (governing board) to be received as members, usually in an elder’s home (address provided)
Sunday, October 1, 2017, 8:45 or 11:00 a.m.
New members are introduced at the worship service they prefer with a reception following the service in the Atrium
Persons wishing to join may do so by:
· Profession of Faith and Baptism – for those who have never belonged to a church before
· Letter of Transfer – for those who are active in another congregation
· Reaffirmation of Faith – for those whose active participation in another congregation has lapsed or whose former church does not transfer letters
If you have children who have not been baptized, we encourage you to schedule this as soon as practical. Note, we offer a year-long confirmation class during the Sunday school hour for 9th graders (or older youth, if not already confirmed).
Please contact a pastor or the church office if you would like to enroll in the next New Member Class or have questions about membership. We hope you will want to join us as together we journey in faith.
