At Treasuring Christ Church, we practice church membership. The Bible teaches that being a part of a church is much more than simply attending a worship service — being a member of a church is a commitment to watch over and care for other members and be watched over and cared for by other members. In church membership we commit to be accountable for our fellow members and accountable to our fellow members. Every member of Treasuring Christ Church agrees to remain true to the faith, engaged with our church family, and to be a part of our mission.
Everyone is welcome to attend without being a member. We also know that it can take some time to decide if you want to join a church. We believe our membership process will help you learn more about Treasuring Christ Church and what it means to be a member.
There are three steps to becoming a member at Treasuring Christ Church. The process is designed to help you get to know Treasuring Christ and for the church to get to know you.
1. Membership Matters Class
Attending a Membership Matters class provides an opportunity for you to learn about TCC—who we are, what we believe, and how we seek to live out our faith as a church. Your attendance does not obligate you to join; this is just the first step in making TCC your church home. Sign up here for any of the Membership Matters Classes we will offer this year.
2. Conversation with a Pastor or Staff
Another important step is to set up a conversation with one of our pastors or staff members. The purpose of this conversation is to foster community with those desiring membership as well as to provide an outlet for any lingering questions about the church to be answered. Our hearts desire is to know you and for you to know us. One of the ways we get to know you is by having you fill out an “Membership Introduction Form” which needs to be completed before your conversation with one of the pastors or staff.
The final step of the membership process is covenanting together with the church. Most simply put, a covenant is an agreement or promise between two or more parties especially for the performance of some action. After completing the class and conversation, those who desire to join the church in covenant membership will be affirmed by the congregation upon recommendation from the pastors. Affirmed members will then sign the church covenant.
