Does it really matter if I’m a member or not? Why do I have to go to take a class to even become a member? Why do I have to sign anything? People often ask these questions about our membership process, skeptical as to why there seem to be so many “hoops” to jump through.
It’s true. We take membership seriously and with a lot of gravity. Committing yourself to a body of believers is weighty. But it’s also wonderful. When Covenant Members join, they commit to a spiritual family that provides encouragement and support. They are called to a biblical degree of responsibility, service and sacrifice to their brothers and sisters. Our elders and leaders also pledge to assist our Covenant Members with care, counsel, prayer and teaching.
STEP 1: COME TO FIRST SUNDAY
Attend First Sunday to learn about our vision, heart and values. We’ll provide dinner, and you’ll have the opportunity to get to know more about us, as we would love to get to know you. First Sunday is offered 4:00-7:00 PM every first Sunday @ 415 Golfview Rd NW. Dinner and childcare are provided.
STEP 2: JOIN A GROUP
Community is a great setting for discipleship. The Christian faith is not intended to be lived in isolation; we were made to be in a relationship with God and with each other.
STEP 3: FIND YOUR PLACE TO SERVE
God has given all of us gifts that he desires us to use to serve his eternal kingdom. God hasn't brought you to Christ Covenant by accident, but wants to use your gifts and experience here.
