 What does joining the church mean?

In our tradition, joining the church matters. We have people stand up and join the church during worship because this is a prayerful and worshipful act. You will experience real power in that moment, when you tell the people around you and God that this is now your spiritual home. When you join, you make a connection, you join a community. In turn, that community promises to support you on your faith journey together. To prepare for this event, we offer a New Member Orientation class (*see dates below).

What does it mean to be a member?

When you join a church, you become a voting member of the church. Members vote on the church’s budget each year, they vote on which of the members should serve as key leaders, and they even vote on whether or not to call a new pastor. When you join a church, you are not saying that this church trumps all others. But you are saying that while you are here, you will be an active part of this congregation. Worship is the heart of what we do as a faith community. Serving others is a part of the deal, as you are able. You will make a difference and the church will be different because you have joined it. New Member Form

"Words from Our Pastor"

Rev. Seth Ethan Carey

Driving Home

Driving Home By Rev. Seth Ethan Carey “I’d say I make about $14,000 a month,” he told me casually from the backseat of my car, headphones dangling from his ears. He looked young – young enough that I insisted on checking his ID before driving him anywhere – but he was apparently a big YouTube
