Covenant Membership Class

We are excited that you are looking to join our church for the furthering of the gospel in your life, the life of our church family, and in the community. We pray that even the process of becoming a member in our church family would be a way to grow even more in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The first step that we encourage for all those interested in membership is for them to learn from our 5-part Covenant Membership class, where we explain the basic documents and life of our local church. If at any point along these sessions, you have any questions or would like to meet with one of us for further questions and/or explanations, please contact a pastor and we will get with you as soon as we can.

After you go through all the sessions, please contact a pastor to set up a time for a membership interview. It’s not as formal as it sounds. We meet to get to know you a little better as well as better introduce you to our church and to who we are. These have been some of the most enjoyable moments for us as pastors and therefore we look forward to getting to know you better in this way.

After we meet, we will step you through the next steps of membership. Sometimes this may be to pair you with someone from our church family to study the gospel further before you officially join. This is not to dissuade you from membership, but rather to better prepare you for how our knowledge and love for the gospel is to greatly shape our love for and interaction with Jesus’ church.

May the grace of Christ be abundantly shown to you as you seek to know and be known by our church family for the glory of God!
