Church Membership is much more than being connected to a local church. It’s a practice that the New Testament church performed to benefit each member as well as the church as a whole. Church Membership provides a new level of spiritual support and encouragement to Christians. Further, it speaks commitment into a culture of consumerism and selfishness, helping God’s family to work for unity within the church. Some of the benefits that members enjoy include:
- Belonging to a church family
- Being under the care and protection of elders and pastors
- Serving in certain ministry positions within the church
Your first step toward membership at Stones is taking the Membership Class. While this four-session class is required for membership, you are not obligated to become a member if you take the class. This class exists to answer your questions and give you all of the information you need to make an informed decision about membership at Stones. We offer the Membership Class several times throughout the year and in different formats, so check the event list below for upcoming offerings of the class!
