Membership Process

New Member Equip

A required four-week class that explains the purpose, core beliefs, and church membership at Parkwood. Attendees will be equipped to be effective disciple-making members.

New Member Equip Classes are on Sundays at 11am in Room 110 as follows:

Class 1: First Sunday of Each Month

Class 2: Second Sunday of Each Month

Class 3: Third Sunday of Each Month

Class 4: Fourth Sunday of Each Month

Pastoral Conversation

After completing New Member Equip, those ready for membership will have a formal conversation with one of Parkwood’s pastors. During this conversation, the potential new member will share his/her story, explore areas of service and engagement at Parkwood with the pastor. Membership expectations and core beliefs must also be affirmed.

Membership Affirmation & Commitment

Once the four New Member Equip classes and the pastoral conversation are completed, those desiring to join Parkwood fill out and submit a signed card to one of Parkwood’s pastors. This card signifies that the new member unites with Parkwood in purpose, affirms our core beliefs, and commits to the expectations of church membership. Once this card is submitted, the membership process is completed.

New Member Celebration & Commissioning

Once per quarter, new members are invited to gather for lunch with the pastoral staff for a time of fellowship and commissioning to serve in the life of Parkwood.
