Membership Process


STEP 1: Attend a membership class.

Our next two membership classes will be held on Sunday March 11th and 18th from 6:00-7:30pm. You only need to attend one of these classes. During this time, you will have the opportunity to meet other perspective members and learn more about the theology, philosophy, and ministry of GEBC as well as the Elders, staff, and sending partners.

STEP 3: Participate in a scheduled interview 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 April 15th and Apr 22nd during the 9:00 and 10:30 a.m. worship services.

STEP 4: Be presented to the congregation as a member during a scheduled Sunday service.

Upon approval for membership by the Elder Board, new members will be introduced to the congregation during one of the worship services on Sunday May 6th
