Church Wide Membership Conference
Beginning on Sunday, October 29th during the Sunday School hour, we will be conducting an 8-week conference on church membership. During this conference, every Sunday School class from third graders up will be meeting in the sanctuary for the sessions. During the conference, we will cover such topics as what a church actually is and what church membership means, church discipline, the importance of the ordinances, congregationalism and elders, our statement of faith and church covenant, among others. Our aim is to instill within the church a uniform understanding of how our church is supposed to function and the role of our members in every facet of the life of the church.
It is vitally important therefore that you make every effort to attend as many sessions of this conference as possible. Our church will only be effective in fulfilling our mission to the extent that we all have the same basic understanding of how our church is to function, beginning at the level of membership. This is an incredible opportunity for us to grow together as a church and we look forward to sharing it with you.
