Some Frequently Asked Questions By
I'm already a Lutheran. Do I have to attend the new member session?
No, you get to attend the session! We intend the session to be more that just getting a refresher course on Lutheran theology. Instead, there will be time for you to begin becoming a part of Grace Lutheran Church: to meet other people in the session, to meet the staff, to learn about the many opportunities Grace Lutheran offers, and to discover the ways that your God-given gifts and interests can help others.
What if I can't make it to the new member session?
If you are unable to attend, you will need to make an appointment with the pastor prior to the session.
What if I am Roman Catholic or Methodist or Presbyterian or...?
Lutherans recognize and accept the rite of baptism, confirmation, and marriage performed in all Christian churches. We hope that through the course of the new member session you will discover the similarities between Lutheranism and your background. This is one way we realize the unity in Christ we confess together. We also hope, though, that you will come to appreciate the distinctively Lutheran aspects of our tradition and theology.
I want to be involved in Grace Lutheran, but I'm not sure I want to drop my membership at my home congregation.
That's okay. You can join us as an Associate Member. This allows you to remain a member of your home congregation but still participate in the congregational life of Grace Lutheran. However, an Associate Member does not have voting privileges.
I don't have any other church membership and don't know that much about Christianity. Is this a problem?
Not at all! We welcome you, and we're glad that Grace Lutheran can play a part in your life of faith. Perhaps you have already seen a little bit of what being a Christian is about through your experiences at Grace Lutheran. This session, then, will be a chance for you to start learning more about the Christian faith.
Thank you for your inquiry about membership at Grace Lutheran Church. Requirements for membership are: baptism, attendance at the new member session, and completion of the membership information letter.
