benefits of membership
Personal growth and maturity //
We live in a world that avoids making and keeping commitments. But when we do make certain commitments, and then keep those commitments, we grow and mature emotionally, socially, and spiritually.
Being part of a Team //
We can accomplish more together as a team than we can by ourselves. And when individuals officially become part of our team — and not just spectators — it lets us know who we can count on.
Behind the scenes information //
Being part of the team allows you to receive updates, information, and give input before non-members.
Vote on Senior Pastor, budget, and the purchase or sale of property.
Six commitments of a member

3 | I will pursue personal spiritual growth through regular times of Bible study and prayer.
4 | I will invest in those who do not know Christ and invite them to opportunities (like church, concerts, or spiritual discovery groups) to learn about the God who loves them and wants a relationship with them.

6 | I will submit to the spiritual authority of the Elder Counsel.
