In a Sermon Series called I Love My Church, we talk about the joy and privilege of being a member of the body of Christ, and incorporate the theme of being CONNECTED in various ways as members of a local church.
Membership Overview is your path to membership at Calvary Fellowship. It reminds us that as followers of Jesus, we're not only Connected in Christ, but as members of God’s household we're also Connected in Unity, Connected in Growth, Connected in Service, and Connected through Prayer.
Become a Member
Step 1: Attend Membership Overview Class
Attend one of our 2017 Membership Overview classes, typically on the first Sunday of the month (9/3, 10/1, 11/5, 12/3) in Seminar 2 at 9:30AM. We’ll explain how simple this process is, and you’ll receive the wonderful book, I Am A Church Member by Thom Rainer as a gift along with your Membership Overview Workbook. No sign-up required! Just come on one of the dates listed above.
Step 2: Self-Study
At your own pace, read through I Am A Church Member and the chapters in the Membership Overview Workbook. You may access the content of each chapter below as well, along with links to review our Essential Doctrine.
- Connected in Christ
- Connected in Unity
- Connected in Growth
- Connected in Service
- Connected through Prayer
- Summary - Questions
Step 3: Complete Membership Application
Step 4: Attend Membership Lunch
The Membership process concludes with a lunch on the third Sunday every other month in Seminar 2 at 12:15PM. Fall dates are: 9/17, 11/19, 2/18/2018, 4/15/2018. Once you have read I Am A Church Member and the Membership Overview Workbook, complete your Membership Application and contact Pastor Mike to reserve a spot at an upcoming Membership Lunch. You’ll be able to meet others who are completing the membership process and ask whatever questions you may have from anything that has been discussed throughout the membership process.
Step 5: Follow-up Interview
Once we receive your application, one of our elders/pastors will contact you to schedule a follow-up meeting to hear your testimony of faith in Jesus and spend time in prayer together to conclude the Membership process. Congratulations, and welcome to Calvary!
One Day Membership Class
For those who prefer the classroom format instead of self-study, we will run a class in the fall and spring (10/22 and 3/18/2018) to complete the membership process in one afternoon.
Contact Pastor Mike Edelman to sign up.
