membership

Membership in a local church is a very important step in the life of a believer. Formally committing oneself to the body of Christ not only brings many privileges, but also many obligations and responsibilities. This is why we take this step seriously. By entering into membership, you demonstrate in a decisive way your desire to unite with us to fulfill our mission together. What are the benefits of church membership?

  • Members participate and vote in the congregational meetings where we seek to discern and plan how to follow God’s vision for our church. 
  • Members are eligible to minister to the children and youth in our church (following a standard screening process). 
  • Members can seek more opportunities to use their spiritual gifts, including those of teaching, serving, and leading within the body.

Membership classes are held several times a year.  If you have been attending Immanuel and are interested in membership, please contact our pastor.
