Church membership is a sacred relationship between a person, the congregation and God; we’re careful to offer support and guidance in a low-pressure way. We encourage you to come see what God is doing here, test your heart to see if He’s leading you to come back, “dip your toe” into the congregation, and then spend time in prayer regarding your involvement.
Crestview is a growing congregation, always eager to welcome new folks into this vibrant, warm and active church family. Typically, the path to membership looks something like this:
Check us out:
Attend a worship service (or two) and leave some contact information in the ‘pew pad’ (a register that is passed among the worship attendees at the beginning of each service).
Crestview reaches out:
Our pastor, or someone from the church staff, makes contact to welcome you and/or answer any questions you may have
Continue to check us out:
After attending several more services (or viewing services online), let us know if you are interested in learning more by reaching out to our pastor via email or the pew pad to arrange for a conversation about how you can become more involved at Crestview.
The pastor will share more information about our congregation, and offer to talk further about church membership.
Attend a Starting Point Luncheon:
Crestview offers a quarterly Starting Point Luncheon for guests who want to learn more about the congregation and explore the possibility of church membership. Call our office, watch the bulletin, website and/or weekly email newsletter for time/dates of the next luncheon.
What is Starting Point?
Starting Point is a great way to meet other guests who are new to the congregation, but isn’t a requirement for membership. The complimentary luncheon lasts about 90 minutes and includes a presentation by our pastor, followed by Q&A, and a tour of our facilities.
Become a Member:
If you decide to become a Crestview member, you will meet the church Session(our governing board) on the Sunday morning before service to be welcomed formally as a member.
During that Sunday service, the new member will be welcomed by the entire congregation during either the 9:30 am or 11 am service.
