why do i need to take a class after becoming a member?

Many people make a commitment to Christ and then receive no direction or follow-up.  They do not know what to do next.  We do not want that to happen in our church. 

Our New Member Orientation is designed to help you understand what has happened to you in salvation, how to have assurance of salvation, and learn how to grow as a Christian.  The five-week class also explains basic Christian beliefs, provides a spiritual gifts inventory, and gives a tour of our church. 

Many people choose to take the class before they join the church.  That is fine, but it is not required.

The class is offered four times a year beginning in January, April, July and October.
