MEMBERSHIP

We welcome all visitors and invite those seeking to strengthen their faith to join our church. Informational membership packets are located by all of the church’s entrance doors. If, upon reviewing the material, you are interested in becoming a member of the church, you may request a meeting with the membership committee or the Pastor. You may join with a letter of transfer from another church, profession of faith or reaffirmation of faith. Prospective members will meet with the Pastor and membership committee to approve the membership request.

 
The PCUSA Book of Order (G-1.0304) defines the ministry of membership:
 

Membership in the Church of Jesus Christ is a joy and a privilege. It is also a commitment to participate in Christ’s mission. A faithful member bears witness to God’s love and grace and promises to be involved responsibly in the ministry of Christ’s Church. Such involvement includes:

  • Proclaiming the good news in word and deed,
  • Taking part in the common life and worship of a congregation.
  • Lifting one another up in prayer, mutual concern, and active support,
  • Studying Scripture and the issues of Christian faith and life,
  • Supporting the ministry of the church through the giving of money, time, and talents,
  • Demonstrating a new quality of life within and through the church,
  • Responding to God’s activity in the world through service to others,
  • Living responsibly in the personal, family, vocational, political, cultural, and social relationships of life,
  • Working in the world for peace, justice, freedom, and human fulfillment,
  • Participating in the governing responsibilities of the church, and
  • Reviewing and evaluating regularly the integrity of one’s membership, and considering ways in which one’s participation in the worship and service of the church may be increased and made more meaningful.
