How do I join the church?
The answer entails a few simple steps. First, the "Inquirer Weekend" (more on that below). Second, an informal meeting with the elders of the church to give them an opportunity to hear of how our Lord has moved in your life. And third, the taking of your membership vows before the congregation.
Why should I attend?
For starters, it's one of the necessary steps for membership. We really want you to understand where we're coming from before you take the formal step of actually joining Christ Presbyterian. It's a great opportunity not only to learn more about the church but to get to know others who have recently started attending as well.
When do we meet?
We meet on a Friday evening, 6:30-8:30 pm, and then the following Saturday morning, 8:30-11:00 am. The plan is to offer this course once a quarter. Our next weekend will be held on Friday, September 25 and Saturday, September 26.
What if I miss it?
Not to worry. Again, the course will be offered once a quarter so another opportunity will be coming soon.
What is the format?
We cover a broad range of topics, each intended to communicate the vision of our church (who we are, what we do, how we do it) in a way that allows for both formal teaching and class interaction.
Think of the "Inquirers Weekend" as something akin to pre-marital counseling. Marriage is too significant to enter into it lightly. You need to know your partner and the principles that shape the relationship. So too with this class.
