MEMBERSHIP

COVENANT MEMBERSHIP

 

We consider anyone who worships with us part of our faith community and a Community Member. Covenant Membership is for those who want to go a step further, making covenant with the members of the church to support the church with their prayers, presence, gifts, service and study.

 

ANYONE is welcome to become a Covenant Member - even if you choose to continue worshipping online only, you are welcome here!


WHAT'S REQUIRED?


Not much. No forms to fill out. No long, multi-week classes. If you have questions, join us for a brief Membership Class where Dr. Hudson will spend a few minutes explaining the history of New Church and the United Church of Christ, and what it means to become a Covenant Member.


Then, if you choose, you will be recognized during a Sunday morning worship service during a Service of Covenant Membership. 



NEXT MEMBERSHIP CLASS

Monday, May 10 at 6:33pm

via Zoom

On Monday, May 10 at 6:33pm Rev. Dr. Jo Hudson will be available on Zoom to meet with anyone who is interested in becoming a Covenant Member of New Church. The meeting is also open to anyone who may not know if they would like to become a Covenant Member and would like more information about New Church and our denomination the United Church of Christ.

 

New Church will receive new Covenant Members during our in-person and online Worship Service on Pentecost Sunday, May 23, 2021.


WHAT WE BELIEVE


We are a progressive, open and affirming faith community. We believe that all people have worth, so you don’t have to be a member of this church or any church, or even know what you believe, to participate in the life of this community. 

OUR VALUES

As a community passionate about following in the way of Jesus, we exist to serve others, particularly those most marginalized by society.  Our hope is that you will feel extravagantly welcome here.

OUR HISTORY

New Church grew out of a small group of disciples who had been gathering together for fellowship and study.
