Membership is a big deal to us at Grace. While many people are a part of the Grace family and have joined in our mission, official membership takes that commitment even deeper and is a formal declaration that you are "all in" to significantly contribute to what God is doing in and through our church.
What are the steps to becoming a member?
Attend a Welcome Event at your campus
Each campus offers a “Welcome to Grace” event to get more familiar with who we are as a church and the overall vision/mission of Grace Community as a whole. This helps you get connected into the life of your campus which is a key part of the membership process.
Complete the Essentials Course
Each campus offers the Essentials course. This 8-week course dives deeper into the foundations of Christianity and what it means to live life as a follower of Christ. We also cover membership requirements and give you a chance to talk through any questions you may have.
Complete a Membership Application
Once you meet all the qualifications for membership (including being baptized, a consistent volunteer, etc.) the next step is to apply. The application helps ensure that Grace is a good fit for you and that you are a good fit for Grace.
Attend a Membership Interview
Each prospective member meets with elders and pastors. This helps our church's senior leaders get to know you better as we talk through how God is working in your life. This also allows them to ask any final questions they may have based on your membership application to ensure you are a good fit as a member at Grace.
