Let yourselves be pulled into a way of life shaped by God’s life, a life energetic and blazing with holiness.

Membership at Resurrection

Members at Resurrection are those who sense God's invitation to make their spiritual home in our church community and are committed to our vision, mission, and identity.

What is the process?

Twice a year a membership class is held, once in the Spring and once in the Fall. Those who are interested in becoming members must complete the 3 weeks of the course and visit with the Rector about their commitment.

Why would I become a member?

So that you can grow up in all righteousness in Christ. Membership is an important part of discipleship, because in community we are challenged, nourished, and encouraged.
