Through the Bible, God gives us beautiful, compelling pictures of his church. In these pictures we see that in church we learn what it means to be beloved (Eph. 5:25-27), what it means to belong (1 Peter 2:4-5), and what it means to serve others (1 Cor. 12:14-18). Church membership is how God places us in Biblical community to love and to be loved.
The only requirement for membership at MPC is a credible profession of faith in Jesus as your savior. For covenant children looking to become communing members, we offer our Communicants Class in sixth grade.
Step 1: Discovering Grace
Do You Know Jesus?
Our Discovering Grace class covers the basics of our church’s beliefs and vision. This class meets for three Sundays and is a helpful introduction to our church and our denomination.
To sign up, contact Chloe (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Step 2: Discovering Membership
What Are You Signing Up For?
During this weekend, you’ll share Friday dinner (in our Pastor’s home) with our pastoral staff and meet at the church on Saturday morning as we talk about our church’s mission of Making Disciples Who Make a Difference. After the seminar, our Elders and Board of Women members will meet with you to get to know you better, hear the story of how God has worked in your life, and share their own experience of gospel grace.
Step 3: Presentation
Welcome to our church family! Once you’ve completed the process, you’ll be part of our new member presentation at the Sunday morning service you plan to attend.
Optional: Discovering MPC
Why Do We Do What We Do?
This three Sunday course goes into detail about our core church values (worship, community, and missions) and how you can get connected in our church family.
