    Inquirer/New Member Class

    Membership is often a natural next step for those who have already attended our church and begun to explore our ministries.  Joining a church is not like joining a club.  There are no dues or secret handshakes.  The only requirement is a profession of belief in Jesus Christ.  Whether you are proclaiming this belief for the first time or restating your commitment along with a letter of transfer from a former church, we rejoice with you!

    Our Inquirer/New Member Class prepares you for this life-changing proclamation.  Our goals for the Inquirer/New Member Class are to increase our awareness and understanding of:

    • The central beliefs of the Christian faith
    • The Presbyterian Church (USA)
    • Westminster Presbyterian Church

    The class provides opportunities for:

    • Making or deepening commitment to Jesus Christ
    • Making friends within the class and within the larger Westminster community
    • Making commitment to specific connections with Westminster

    New members will be welcomed during worship the following Sunday.
