Exploring Church Membership
- Date: October 20, 2018
- Time: 9:30 AM-12:30 PM
Membership in the United Church of Christ is an important part of our life together. We see it as a covenant that joins us together as one body. As part of the reception of new members, promises are made by those joining, and promises of support, love and fellowship are made in turn to those joining by the congregation. Church membership is based in relationship and commitment. It is a forward-looking promise to walk together, support one another, this local church, and the larger church, and grow together in faith and love. Being a member brings both responsibilities and gifts – it is a public declaration of togetherness.
We are blessed to be growing as a church and many of our new members come from different traditions and backgrounds. As a result, we hold a Connections Class where we get to know one another, explore what membership is (and what it isn’t), share the history of this church and our denomination, and decide whether membership is right for you or not. We are planning to welcome new members to the church on November 18. Thus, we are scheduling this class.
There is no obligation to join by attending, and we will offer childcare if requested. Class will finish with a light lunch from Berkshire Mountain Bakery.
If you would like to join, but cannot attend the class, please contact Brent as soon as possible.
