|Membership & Giving|
When you are ready to make the commitment of membership, there is a path to membership to follow. There is no test to pass or requirements to meet; our hope is that you will know enough about our history, our values and how we live our faith that you will feel comfortable in choosing this faith community as yours. Our church is grounded in congregational polity and each of its members bears responsibility for maintaining the health and future of the congregation, by taking part in congregational decisions, attending services, and sharing time, talents and treasure.

The Meaning of Membership
While each member is free to choose among the many opportunities available, membership is most fully realized if the member attends Sunday morning services often, participates in some activity other than worship in order to build community, and supports the church with treasure and talents. The church encourages each member to practice stewardship, meaning taking care of the church so that it remains strong and healthy.
