What in the world does becoming a member mean?
Well, it's more about responsibility than it is rights. Members commit to our four core practices as a church. So members INVITE other people regularly to investigate who Jesus is and what this church thing is all about. They also SERVE in some way. Serving (or volunteering) is one of the simplest ways to live a little more like Jesus, as we simply offer Him who we are with our talents and time. Members also CONNECT with others in a group, because we grow best in a circle, not a row. Finally, members commit to regularly supporting the mission of Immanuel when they GIVE. It isn't about how much, it's just about how we give...hopefully with a cheerful and grateful heart. We don't monitor any of these, but ask members to make the commitment for themselves.
Exploring Immanuel is more than the first step in the membership process. It's also an opportunity to get "up close and personal" with Pastor Josh and to be introduced to immanuel's mission, vision and core beliefs. If you are relatively new at Immanuel, this could be your next step - even if you are not thinking about committing to becoming a member.
All are welcome!
