We warmly welcome you!
to Westminster Presbyterian Church
New Member Classes - Are you interested in membership (aka "Covenant Partnership") at Westminster Presbyterian Church?
Our upcoming options are:
NOTE - The following FAQs are intended to answer questions about the 3-week class (one hour, once a week) but applies to a single class of 3 hours (i.e. on a Saturday).
What will we discuss? Classes will include such topics as What Do Presbyterians Believe, What It Means To Be A Covenant Partner in ECO, and How To Love God, Love Others and Serve Others at Westminster.
Do I have to attend all 3? It is important to attend all three since we go through a "journey" of sorts together. You'll hear our story - and we'll hear yours. On our last session, our church's leaders (aka "the session") will introduce themselves to you and will conclude our process by voting to receive you as a member (*you must be present).
Why do I rsvp? We want to get to know you in these few weeks and let you get to know us. Your rsvp lets us prepare a guidebook for you/your family and communicate with you if there is anything special to know before/while attending. To register for this class or to receive more information, RSVP here or contact Mary McAbee at email@example.com or 864-590-6719.
What about my kids? Joining as a family can be a wonderful experience - and we encourage that! We would prefer to discuss your own situation personally and see what works best for you. Generally, we ask that children 12 and younger wait to join and participate in special class during the Fall of their 6th grade year (to join the following February) and those older (13+) can participate in the New Member Class with their parents. As with all joining decisions, we want your child to make the decision to become a covenant partner for him/herself. Again, we are happy to discuss that with you since what works for some families, might not for yours.
Can I speak with a pastor? YES! Our pastors are excited to walk with you through this process. Pastor Justin will be teaching the class and you can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
