St. Paul says, “You are the body of Christ and individually members of it.” (1 Cor. 12:27). Membership is a symbol of our mutual commitment to one another, and the commitment of ourselves to use our gifts and energy to serve Christ. Membership is a Biblical concept we see even in the early Church.
Membership has many benefits. Members lead on boards and committees, and have a vote on many congregational decisions such as the call of pastors, ministry decisions, and budget priorities. In this way the members of the Church shape the present and future ministry of the Church.
We hope you will want to explore becoming a member of Winnetka Covenant Church. We invite you to contact Pastor Hawkinson to get more information. Membership applications are available from the Church office.
