New Members

If you are new in the area and looking for a church home, or have been attending Associated for some time and have yet to take the membership step, we invite you to join Associated Church. Journeys in Faith, our orientation for persons considering membership in Associated, explores issues of faith and life in the Christian tradition. The new member class meets at various times throughout the year in the Office Conference Room. Each session is led by members of our Adult Ministry Team.

While we hope you will choose to make Associated your church home, attendance does not commit you to joining. Everyone is welcome. Church School happens at the same time for children, and childcare is available in the Nursery. New members are received in one of three ways:

  1. For those who have never been members of Christ’s Church, you are received by Confession of Faith and Baptism, if never baptized;
  2. Those whose church membership is not current in any church, or who are members of churches that do not give letters of transfer, are welcomed by Reaffirmation of Faith; and
  3. Most other persons coming from membership in any Christian Church are received by Letter of Transfer.

Questions? Call or email Jerry Ganfield, Convener of the Adult Team to find out when the next New Member Classes will be held, tigerben@wildblue.net or 451-8721.
