Prepare To Be Grateful For New Friends
New Member Sunday
This Sunday we welcome new friends into our church. These are individuals God has arranged to be joined to us for our good, the good of our church, and for His glory. They have completed Starting Point, been interviewed by our leaders, and are eager to press into the life of our church body.
"But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose." (1 Corinthians 12:18 ESV)
It's one thing to be somewhere, another thing to belong. This is what we communicate when a person becomes a member of our church. We are all agreeing with one another...you belong to us and we belong to you. This church becomes your church as much as any other member of the church.
