How Do I Join SMPC?
The only requirement for being a part of the people of God is faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, membership at SMPC is open to all who have made a public profession of faith. Because our desire is for your relationship with Christ and his Church to be as fruitful as possible, the elders strongly encourage the following pathway designed to take you from your first contact with SMPC into meaningful participation in the life of the church. We look forward to walking it with you!
- Participation in the Inquirer’s Class. This 6 week class has two goals: to provide instruction in the faith, worship and mission of the church, and to connect participants to the pastors as well as others who are new to the church. For more information about the Inquirer’s Class, click here.
- Meet with an elder. This is a chance for newcomers to know and be known by the elders of the church. These meetings take place during the 6th session of the Inquirer’s Class.
- Take the membership vows. Here, new members and the congregation have the chance to openly profess their commitment to one another and to the work to which God has called us.
