Membership and Baptism
A Simple Path
Grace has a simple path to membership and baptism. If you are ready to do either or both of these, register to attend the appropriate classes described below.
Discover Grace is now identified as our membership class for adults. Participants in this 3-1/2 hour class will learn the theology taught at Grace (Jesus, the Bible, sin, salvation, grace, Holy Spirit, the church, discipline, spiritual gifts, baptism, Lord's Supper), our denominational and church practices and leadership structure, and membership privileges and responsibilities. Attending the class will lead to church membership.
Discover Grace for Teens. Our Senior and Junior High Sunday schools periodically hold membership classes during the Sunday school hour. If you are a teen interested in joining the church, contact John Vanne for details.
Children's Membership Class is designed for children in 3rd through 6th grade. Participants in this class will learn the gospel of salvation using a six-part outline from "Kids' Evangelism Explosion," write and deliver a personal testimony of salvation, understand the meaning of the Lord's Supper and how to prepare for and participate in it, and understand the privileges and responsibilities of church membership. One parent or guardian must participate with the child in the class in order to reinforce the learning between classes.
Baptism Class is a one-hour class for anyone desiring to baptize an infant or to be baptized themselves as believers. We will cover the meaning of baptism, who should be baptized, and the various modes of baptism. We will answer all of your questions about baptism and arrange for it to take place during one of the scheduled Sundays. For those who are not yet members of the church, we will share the steps for membership. If you'd like to hear more about our beliefs on baptism, click here.
