Steps to Membership

  • Attend a New Member/Inquirers' Class. These classes are announced in our bulletin, weekly eNewsletter, and posted on our website. Generally these classes meet several times a year.  For more information, or to sign up for the next class, contact Sara McDonnell at the church office. 
  • On Sunday, two or three weeks after the class, the members from the Session, (our governing board), will meet with the group at 10:30am to approve the new members. The approved candidates will then join the church during the 11:00am service following the Session meeting.

Becoming a member does not obligate anyone to a certain level of activity, and there are no membership dues or attendance requirements. All members are encouraged to find the right level of involvement for themselves and their current place in life.
