STEP 3: MEET WITH AN ELDER

The elders review every membership application. Each applicant is then interviewed individually by two elders and you will have the opportunity to sign up for a time slot during your initial membership class. During the interview the applicants are encouraged to ask any questions they may have about GEBC. No decision about membership is made during the interview. Elders debrief with the entire board before a decision is made. Once a decision is reached concerning you application, the board will extend an invitation for membership by email. These interviews will be held on Sunday mornings October 13th and October 20th during the 9:00 and 10:30 a.m. worship services.

STEP 4: BE PRESENTED TO THE CONGREGATION AS A MEMBER BY EMAIL

Upon approval for membership by the Elder Board, new members will be introduced by email to the congregation on Sunday November 3rd.
