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.
