We see throughout the New Testament Jesus forming a new community of believers characterized by unity, commitment, and service. When you join a local church, you are committing yourself to a spiritual family that provides encouragement and support.
We believe church membership is an important part of participating in the body of Christ and therefore desire to inform and equip each person to live out this value. It is a total of 6 hours of classroom instruction, covered over 2 days.
When it comes to being a member of a local church, we want you to come in with your eyes wide open about not only the blessings of church membership, but also the responsibilities involved. Every local church is different, even when connected to a larger family of churches. For that reason, our membership class takes you through a thoughtful journey of what it truly means to belong to Holy Cross in a pursuit of unity, commitment, and service. You'll hear about our mission to magnify God's glory, live as God's people, and engage in God's mission. And, better yet, you'll hear from several leaders and members in our church on how to best demonstrate and live out this mission. Hope to see you at the next one!
Attending a membership class is required for membership, but participation in the class does not obligate you to join.
Next Membership Class: Fall 2017 / TBA
