Becoming A Member
Becoming a Member
At Parkside, we believe that church membership is an important aspect of Christian discipleship. As we join together, we are able to encourage each other in our Christian walks and hold each other accountable.
There are three steps in the membership process at Parkside:
1) Attend our membership class “Parkside Profile.” In these sessions, we discuss what we believe at Parkside and how we operate as a church. This class meets the first three Sundays of each month at 11:15am. You may complete the classes in any order. Completing the classes does not obligate you to join, so if you want to learn more about Parkside, this is a good way to do that. If you want to join, these classes are required. Please note that you must also be at least 18 years old to become a member.
2) Once you’ve completed the Parkside Profile classes, complete a membership application. You may fill this out and return it to the church office, or complete an online application.
3) When we receive your application, we’ll contact you to schedule a membership interview with one of our pastors and elders. This gives us a chance to get to know you a bit, hear how you came to faith in Christ, and for you to ask any additional questions about the church.
After you’ve completed these steps, our elders review and approve the applications. On a regular basis, we welcome new members to our church during an evening service.
