The moment you walk through the doors, you belong here and can consider this your church home. Since we don’t have traditional membership, you won’t be able to “join” the church as a “member,” but we hope you become fully engaged in the life and mission of the church. There are four ways to reach full engagement: through serving on a ministry team, connecting in a group, financially supporting the church, and inviting people to church. Those who are fully engaged with us are considered our members. Look for your time with us to be Christ centered, Word impacted, relationship building, ministry engaging, and prayer focused.
We’re glad you’re interested in engaging in the life of our church. We don’t have traditional membership in the sense that you “join the church,” but we’d love to help you get connected. Our hope is for The Church at Lake Cherokee Church to be a place where you can walk through the doors, call it your church home, and begin to get connected. Those who are fully engaged with us are considered our members. We describe full engagement as:
- Connecting in a group.
- Serving on a team.
- Supporting the church financially.
- Inviting friends to church.
Traditionally, membership has been known to represent joining a church, calling it your church home, and/or taking the first step toward involvement and volunteering. Yet the word “membership” has also carried a lot of baggage and has become an unnecessary barrier to involvement for some of our attendees.
Because many people that live on the lake also have Primary Residences in other places, we have historically viewed membership as more of a dynamic partnership than a static decision, and so full engagement is a key prerequisite to becoming a connected ‘member’ of our faith community.
