"New Member" Classes - Led By Pastor Ken DeWalt
Hope Church's "New Member" class is a three (3) session class for people exploring membership at Hope - there is absolutely no obligation, commitment or even pressure to join Hope Church.
The "New Member" class class usually meets once a week for three weeks, but the meeting days and times vary depending on the preferences of the members of the individuals that have signed up for the class. The "New Member" class is offered several times each year, and Pastor Ken limits class sizes to six to eight adults to encourage individual participation.
Whenever a "New Member" class is forming, it's always announced well in advance in our Hope Happenings weekly emailed newsletters and in our church bulletins.
Here's a basic outline of what is covered in the "New Member" class:
- Discuss in depth the covenantal vows you will take should you decide to become a member of Hope Church.
- Work together through a 160 question spiritual gift inventory to discover where the Holy Spirit has uniquely gifted you to serve in the Kingdom. of God.
- Spend the last session discussing each ministry team of Hope and how we work together to live out our mission: "To make disciples who make disciples for Jesus Christ."
If you are considering possible membership at Hope Church, this class is for you. See Pastor Ken for details and information and to register for the class.
