We are glad that you are thinking about joining NSF.
Here are the steps:
Take the Class
The New Members Class is for anyone wanting to know more about NSF. There is no obligation to join afterwards. We ask that you sign-up for the classes, so that we can have the right amount of food and materials available.
Tell Us You Want to Join
If you decide you want to join, you will turn in an Intent to Join Form. This form is the basic information about you and your family, and previous church involvement. We hand them out at each class, but if you lose yours you can always ask us for another copy.
Talk with an Elder
With the information you have provided on the Intent to Join form, an elder will contact you about an interview for membership. This interview is informal and mostly focused on faith in Jesus and a desire to be a contributing member of our church. No quizzes on the catechisms.
Take Vows in a Worship Service
After the interview, we will schedule a service for you to take your vows before the congregation. And, if you have not been baptized, we will discuss doing that at the same service.
