Becoming a Member
We are so glad to tell you about the process of being a member at Jubilee Community Church. Christianity is not a go-at-it-alone pursuit. Living for Jesus Christ in our culture is challenging and we need one another. We might prefer isolation. Yet God has made us for community and relationship with him and each other. Our model of covenant membership is a commitment to building up our church body through love, support, accountability and shared responsibility. Please let us know how we can serve you.
Step 1: Attend Get To Know Jubilee Class
Come and meet a pastor as well as hear more about Jubilee with no strings attached. By attending a Get To Know Jubilee Class you will learn about who we are, where we have been, where we hope to go, what we believe and how to get connected in Jubilee’s community.
Please email Jess at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for our next class. Light refreshments served.
Step 2: Submit Your Membership Inventory
This inventory helps our pastors understand the journey the Lord has you on. Further information about the inventory will be given at membership class.
Step 3: Set Up Your Elder Conversation
Elder conversations allow our pastors to get to know prospective members to learn how the gospel has been received, to confirm understanding concerning church membership, to answer questions, and to address any biblically warranted concerns. After conversation the elder will then speak to his recommendation at the next member’s meeting.
Step 4: Baptism (if needed)
If you have not yet been baptized as a believer by immersion, baptism is the next step towards membership. Please email email@example.com for more information on our baptism classes.
Step 5: Membership Vote:
On the recommendation of the elders, the church votes to add prospective member to the congregation of Jubilee Community Church during the quarterly members' meeting.
Step 6: Covenant Affirmation:
Public affirmation during a Sunday service is where Jubilee affirms new members. At these services, each person joining publicly affirms the church covenant and is officially received into membership.
We list the names of potential members in our weekly update prior to each quarterly member's meeting and ask if anyone has concerns about someone proceeding toward membership, that they contact us as soon as possible.
If you have any further questions please contact the church: firstname.lastname@example.org
