New Member Classes
How do I join Bethel?
Our Fall New Member Class is Saturday October 19th, in the Emmaus Room, from 9:00am-1:30pm with lunch at noon.
Contact Sandy Ripp at email@example.com.
New Member Sunday is on November 10th at the 9:00 service with a small reception after, in the Emmaus Room.
What is involved in the New Member Orientation?
It's a one-day session (about 4 hours) in which we tell of Bethel's history and mission, explain who we are as Lutheran Christians, review the many ways new members can become involved in the life of our church, introduce visitors to Bethel's pastoral and other staff, tour our church facility, and enjoy a great meal together. We then ask all who are interested in becoming members to complete paperwork prior to New Member Sunday.
What is New Member Sunday?
It's our special day of celebration for those individuals and families who have chosen to fellowship with us as members (about 4 weeks after Orientation). Besides welcoming new members during the service, we have a reception afterwards, so that members and friends may also greet them.
