Why Membership Matters?
Does it really matter if I’m a member or not? Why do I have to take a class to even become a member? Why do I have to sign anything? People often ask these questions about our membership process, skeptical as to why there seem to be so many “hoops” to jump through.
It’s true. We take membership seriously because we believe committing yourself to a body of believers is a big responsibility. But it’s also wonderful. When Covenant Members join, they commit to a spiritual family that provides encouragement and support. They are called to a biblical degree of responsibility, service and sacrifice to their brothers and sisters. Our elders and leaders also pledge to assist our Covenant Members with care, counsel, prayer and teaching.
What are the Benefits of Membership?
- A place to belong: Where you can establish meaningful relationship, grow in grace and serve others.
- A chance to make a difference: God can use you to make a lasting difference in your family, this community and even the world.
- A way to grow: Tools to help individuals and families become generous servants living intentional lives.
- A place for protection: It places you under the spiritual protection of godly leaders.
How to Become a Member?
Connection class is offered on a quarterly basis, and is held over the course of 2 Sunday mornings before the worship service. During this time you will be exposed to our beliefs, vision, mission, values strategy, expectations, and our commitment to you and your family. After the class you will be presented with a covenant to sign. We will explain the covenant and answer any questions you might have.
