After visiting us in person you may decide that you want to be “part of the family.” Other congregations may call it “being identified with” or “placing membership.” While not a requirement to attend services or activities it is an expedient way for you as a Christian to acknowledge that you want to be involved at Southwestern, that you want to put yourself under the oversight of the elders, and that you want to make it your home congregation. Having done so we as a congregation can start calling on you to help with the work of the church in the areas that you are comfortable serving in. To become part of the family just let one of our elders (Ron, Bill, or Greg) or our minister (Matt). After you have expressed interest you will have a meeting with the elders during which they will ask you some questions so they can get to know you better and help identify any areas you may like to serve in. Some of the questions they will ask include: employment, family background, story of how you became a Christian, talents, interests etc. All these questions are a way to get to know you better so that as your elders they can best serve you and your family. After that we will add your family information to our directory and records, then we will make an announcement to the congregation the following Sunday.
