How can I become a member?

The Membership Pathway is the process we use to help people become members of the church. This Pathway uses a “flipped curriculum.” That means that the content is available online for viewing/reading at your own time. Then we have gatherings to process that content together.

In order to join the church, it is required that you:

  • View all of the following videos, or read all of the following documents, prior to the associated meeting times. You are encouraged to watch the videos with others, although that is optional.
  • Attend at least one of each of the groups of sessions.
    • Doctrine A
      • covering the Doctrine videos through Point 3
    • Doctrine B
      • covering the Doctrine videos Point 4 through Point 10.
    • Culture A
      • covering Culture & Core Values Videos through Core Value 2: Holy Spirit
    • Culture B
      • covering Culture & Core Values Videos beginning with Core Value 3: Diverse Unity
    • Church Practice:
      • covering the videos under Church Practice
  • Complete the Membership Request Form
  • Meet individually or in small groups with the pastor or board member

We anticipate repeating this membership process during the 2019-2020 school year for those who are unable to participate or choose not to participate this time.
