One of the great joys of our congregation is welcoming new members with whom we can Share the Joy of Life in Christ! To become a member is simple. When someone indicates that he or she would like to become a member, that person meets with the men and women who serve on our governing board, the Session. The members of the Session introduce themselves to the prospective member, and vise versa, to get to know one another. The Session then affirms that person’s desire to unite with our church. On a subsequent Sunday, the new member is presented to the congregation by one of the Session members and the pastor. At this time, the new member affirms faith in Jesus and his or her desire to share in the ministries of the church. In response, the congregation welcomes the new member and pledges their prayers, encouragement and love to help the new member Share the Joy of Life in Christ!
