Discovering Church Membership

Last Saturday, New Venture Christian Fellowship hosted our beloved Discovery I class- Discovering Church Membership.  We had eager church goers who were ready to make a commitment to their church that day.  There were guest speakers, breakfast and lunch served, and plenty of inspiring words.  At the end of the class, the new members received their membership cards and partook in an awesome group photo inside of the worship center. 

The value of Discovery classes at New Venture is quite obvious: Members get to know the staff, they learn about the benefits of church membership, and they discover the importance of getting involved.  Whether it be our Small Groups, Prayer Teams, or greeters, we truly have something for everyone here.  Getting involved in the ministry of New Venture becomes such a rewarding experience for all involved.  There is nothing quite like touching the lives of others- whether it be a simple "hello" and handshake, or becoming heavily involved as a Small Groups Coordinator... the rewards are endless. 

There are some people who attend church whose only interaction with other humans during a seven day period is the one that occurs at their church.  This may sound shocking and hard to believe, but I have actually had people approach me and tell me that personally.  It is our job as followers of Christ to extend our hand out to as many people as possible.  A simple gesture such as a greeting can potentially change lives forever.

I encourage you to get involved in the church.  Our next Discovery class starts soon and I welcome you to invite your friends and neighbors.  You won't regret it!
