Establishing roots in our faith community.
Anyone can feel like they belong to CrossWay Church. They can attend worship services and participate in its ministries. However, we feel that membership is an important step to consider when you decide to call CrossWay Church home.
WHAT ARE THE STEPS YOU MUST TAKE IF YOU WANT TO BECOME A MEMBER OF CROSSWAY CHURCH?
❏ Step 1: Take A Membership Class
This three hour class introduces you to CrossWay Church and what membership entails. We offer these in a group and individual settings as the need arises. Attending this class does not obligate you to become a member at Crossway Church. It is just the first part of the membership process. You can initiate the next step whenever you feel comfortable. Contact us if you are interested in taking the course!
❏ Step 2: Fill Out A Membership Request Form
This brief form is your way of letting CrossWay Church know that you would like to become an official member. We get some personal contact information from you so we know we have current data. We also invite you to share a bit about your faith journey and why you want to join CrossWay Church. Each member of a family who wants to become a member must fill out this form.
❏ Step 3: Meet With Elder / Deacon
This may sound scary to some, but it shouldn’t. It is an informal meeting that gives you a chance to meet some of the leaders of the church and ask any questions you may still have about CrossWay Church. It also gives the leaders of CrossWay Church an opportunity to get to know you better -learn more of your personal story and unique talents and gifts. If you both feel confident about membership after the meeting, you will be invited to become a formal member of the church. If multiple members of a family would like to join, the elders will probably meet with your entire family.
❏ Step 4: Sign Membership Covenant and Be Introduced during Worship.
Every member of CrossWay Church signs a membership covenant. It outlines the promises you make to CrossWay church and promises the church leadership makes to you. We like to do this during a worship service so that others get a chance to welcome you. If you are a member of another church, we would encourage you to write them letter and ask them transfer your membership to CrossWay before this service. If you haven’t been baptized or made a public profession of faith (for those baptized as children), we will incorporate those steps into the service as well.
