How to Join
Members of our congregation come from many different religious traditions. We’re delighted you might be considering joining our church family. Whether or not you become a member here, please know that we are glad to have you participate in the work and worship of Immanuel as we seek to live out the meaning of our name by embodying God’s love.
No doubt you’ve already discovered lots of opportunities to become meaningfully involved here. We believe that vital involvement in a community of faith is more important than whether your name is on a membership roll. So our membership process seeks to emphasize ways that you can become a vital part of what God is doing in, through, and beyond this congregation.
The membership process at Immanuel involves four simple steps, the first of which is attending “Meet Immanuel.” This two hour introductory session takes place on the first Sunday of each month from 11:20am-1:20pm (or 3:30-5:30pm upon request!) and includes a light lunch for participants. Simply RSVP to Pastor Katie to sign up. Nursery care is available upon request.
On completion of that class, you’ll be received into membership, introduced to the congregation, and welcomed with other new members at a social event.. We also arrange for someone from the congregation to begin to introduce you to new friends and activities at Immanuel.
If you’re interested in joining Immanuel or learning more about what it means to become a member here, please talk to one of the pastors or call the church office at (703) 356-3042.
