Thank you for your interest in becoming a member at Cedar Grove! Membership is something we take seriously because we believe the Bible takes it seriously. Every member is not only a representative of the church, but also of Jesus Christ. Meaningful membership guards our corporate witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ and helps us in our mission of making this gospel known.
Below is an overview for how you can become a member of Cedar Grove. If you have any more questions about membership please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 660-438-5675.
1. Sign up for our “Exploring Membership” class (online registration form is located at the bottom of this page)
This class is 4 weeks in length and during our time together we’ll discuss topics such as biblical church membership, important documents (statement of faith, constitution, budget, membership covenant, etc.), who our deacons are and what they do, all of the resources available here and how to access them, the different ministry leaders, how to join a care group, and much more.
This class is for anyone who would like to learn more about our church and what it means to be a member here. Taking the class does not mean you must become a member when it is finished, but for those who know they are ready to become members, attendance at three out of the four classes is required before the membership process can continue (class notes from session missed must be read outside of class).
We offer this class twice a year (fall and spring) and it meets on Sunday mornings from 10:00-10:45am. Our next session will begin October 8th, 2017.
2. Sign our membership covenant and fill out a membership card
We will actually make these available to you during our last week of class, if you’re ready. These are then turned it to our deacons and pastoral leadership for review and acceptance.
3. Welcome to the family!
Once you’ve become a member, you may come before the church or we can simply let our church family know about you through our newsletter and podcast.
