New Members Class

New Members Class

Are you a young person interested in making confession of faith? Are you moving from another area and would like to become a member of our church? Every September through May, one of our pastors teaches a new member’s class. The class covers all the basic doctrines and distinctives of the Reformed faith from an experiential perspective.

At the end of the class, members meet with the elders to share the ongoing work of the Lord in their own hearts. After that meeting, the new prospective members make public confession of faith before the congregation. Upon confession of faith, members are encouraged to:

  • participate in the sacraments upon careful self-examination,
  • vote in congregational meetings,
  • engage in the church’s ministries and offices where applicable,
  • and join in mutual Christian accountability with other members.
