New Members - Member Resources
Getting Connected to The Life
New to The Life or want to become a member? Here are some frequently asked questions:
How do I become a member?
Accept the invitation at the end of each service to become a part of The Life. Follow the direction of the ushers to the room where you will be welcomed and given a member form to complete. You will then be registered to attend the New Members Class.
What is expected of me as a new member?
As a new member you will be expected to:
- regularly attend and participate in worship services
- participate in weekly bible study
- serve in a ministry
- give financially as a consistent tither
- spread the gospel
Why should I complete New Member classes?
New member classes are important because they help new members understand the mission, vision and values of The Life. After completing classes, new members will feel more a part of The Life community and will also be able to participate in ministry.
Is childcare provided at new member classes?
For new members attending the Tuesday night classes, children can attend the bible study classes for children ages 6 weeks through high school.
Which translation of the Bible do you use?
Various translations are used to give an understanding of God’s Word. The King James Version is the standard version for our scripture readings. Choose a bible that is personal to you and bring it with you to all services that you may compare what is being taught with the Word of God.
How do I get baptized?
Water baptisms are held the second Sunday of each month. If you have accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior and have not been water baptized you must register for the Baptism Orientation Class to be held the Saturday before the baptism. Contact the Evangelism Ministry.
Is there a dress code? How do I dress for church?
You can expect a variety of dress styles among the congregation. You may dress however you are comfortable. We just ask that your dress be respectful to the other congregants as well as to yourself (i.e. no clothing or items that would be considered offensive because of graphics, language or message or of a provocative nature).
First Sunday is Communion Sunday so leaders dress in official clergy attire.
Fourth Sunday is Youth Sunday so casual wear or jeans are appropriate for all attendees including clergy.
How often do you hold communion?
We hold our communion service on the First Sunday of each month.
Do you provide nursery and child care during Sunday worship services?
Yes, we provide a safe nursery and children’s program for those age 6 weeks to 12 years old during the 9am and 11am Sunday worship services.
