Why join a church anyway?
It's a good question. There seems to be a trend to not commit to anything and just seek to get benefit from it. But there are some good reasons to join:
- To show that we share an agreed mission in life.
- To demonstrate our commitment in that mission to one another.
- To declare that we are honoring the Lord with our time and money at this local church.
- To place ourselves in accountable and supportive relationships as we make our spiritual journey.
There is currently a two-step process to join in membership at Eastern Hills:
involves attending our “Discover the Mission” Membership Class. You may like the idea of belonging to the church, but might be confused about the mission of the church and how you fit in. In this class, Pastor Pat will present some of these topics:
These classes are held four times per year within our spiritual formation calendar. Because we want to make sure that those leading our church are committed to the common mission, there are some leading roles that require you be a member to fill that role.
Upcoming classes are tentatively scheduled as follows:
