Becoming a Member of Emmanuel Faith
Our Membership and Welcome Team exists to help you feel welcome here and guide you in the process of becoming an active, connected participant, and eventually a member of our church family. A variety of information and resources are available to you via the Welcome and Membership Ministry.
Our hope for each new visitor is to take a step toward becoming an active church member. There are three easy steps to become a member of EFCC:
(1) Attend the Starting Point Class: This class will introduce you to our church family. You’ll get to share your story (testimony) with a listener at your table, and completely fill out the membership application.

(2) Once you have attended EFCC for six months, you will be recommended for church membership at an upcoming congregation meeting which are held quarterly. We will contact you prior to this meeting and you are welcome to attend. Contact us for more details or for a meeting schedule.
(3) Once you become a member, we extend the “Right Hand of Fellowship” to you during a worship service. You will be contacted about 2-3 weeks prior and we will ask you which service you normally attend. During this service, Pastor Ryan will ask you to come forward and he will warmly welcome you to our church family in front of the congregation.
The Right Hand of Fellowship is usually offered four times a year (usually on the third weekend of the month in February, May, August and November).
