We’re glad you’re interested in joining the Kinney family! In order for us to get to know you and in order for you to get to know who Kinney is and what we’re all about, our membership process includes three steps:
1) Attend the Prospective Membership Class.
Our Prospective Membership Class is offered every other month. This class is an opportunity for prospective members to get to know Kinney: who we are and what we're all about. The Prospective Membership Class does not obligate you to become a member of the church; however, it is the required first step in the process of becoming a member. Email the church office to find out when the next class is offered, or to sign up: firstname.lastname@example.org.
2) Participate in a membership interview.
After attending the Prospective Membership Class, someone from the church office will reach out to you to see if you are interested in scheduling a membership interview. In this meeting, you will sit down with the pastor to talk about the gospel, how you came to trust in Christ for salvation, and ask any questions you may have about Kinney.
3) Await congregational approval.
At the members’ meeting following the membership interview, the congregation will have the privilege hearing a summary of how you came to faith in Christ. Then, Lord willing, they will vote you into membership! After you are voted into membership, we will contact you to welcome you to the Kinney family! At the end of the following Sunday service, you will be called up front so that the church can personally welcome you into our congregation.
