We believe church membership is both biblical and important. It is an individual's way of committing to a body of believers and a body of believers' way of committing to an individual. Membership at CFC is not about having your name on a roll, but belonging to a people. If you would like to join, here is the process:
STEP 1: ATTEND DISCOVERING CFC
This once a quarter class shares our church's history, vision, values and beliefs. You'll discover more about us and we hope to discover a little more about you too. After the class, we enjoy dinner together. You can find out when the next class is offered on our Major Events page.
STEP 2: WATCH DISCOVERING CHURCH MEMBERSHIP
This one hour class shares a biblical vision for church membership and why we think it is important for every Christian to be a member of a local church. You can watch the class here.
STEP 3: APPLY FOR MEMBERSHIP
After you attend Discovering CFC, you will be emailed a link to a membership application. This isn't meant to be overly thorough or intimidating. We just want to get to know you and hear more about your journey of faith.
STEP 4: BEGIN SERVING
Serving is an important part of membership at CFC. It is one of the ways we care for one another. After you apply for membership, a pastor will be in touch to help you discover which service team (Worship, Tech, Operations, Connections and Kids) would be the best fit for you.
STEP 5: MEET WITH ELDERS
After you've started serving, we will schedule a time for you to sit down with two of our elders. It's important to us that you don't feel like a number here, so we want to get to know you better and let you have a chance to ask any remaining questions about membership at CFC.
STEP 6: CONGREGATIONAL AFFIRMATION
Once a quarter, our members gather together for a membership meeting. One of the best parts of the meeting is hearing new members our elders are recommending for membership. The two elders that you met with will introduce you to the congregation and then the congregation will give a 'voice-vote' to affirm the elders recommendation and welcome you into membership!
