  1. Sign the Membership Book
    Signing the Membership Book is done in the presence of the Minister, President, or Clerk of the Board and can be done during “Recognition Sundays” which occur quarterly. Our Membership Book is located in the back of the Sanctuary under the display glass.  
  2. Make a pledge and a “payment of record”
    Every member of the congregation is also responsible for an annual pledge and contribution of record. For members who are not able to give financially but still wish to be stewards of our community, a waiver of this requirement is available upon request to the minister.
