STEP 3: MEET WITH AN ELDER.
The elders review every membership application. Each applicant meets individually with two elders. You will have the opportunity to sign up for a time slot during your initial membership class. No decision about membership is made during the meeting. Elders debrief with the entire board before a decision is made. Once a decision is reached concerning your application, the board will extend an invitation for membership by email. These meetings will be held on Sunday mornings April 7th and April 14th 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 5th.
STEP 5: NEW MEMBERS’ MEET AND GREET
You and your family are invited to join us for a meet and greet with Elders and Staff on presentation Sunday May 5th, after the second service. Children are welcome!
