When you become a member of Oak Ridge Presbyterian Church, you join a family. Our New Member Classes, which happen twice a year are designed to help you get to know your new family by getting to know the Church and your fellow class participants, and share your journeys of faith together. To sign up to take part in one of our upcoming New Member Classes, please contact the Church Office.
MEMBERSHIP – WHERE DO I BELONG?
Membership is a funny thing. Sometimes you pay for it – like club dues at the golf course or monthly fees at the gym. Sometimes you earn it – like the grades that get you into an honors program or the new scientific discovery that gets you a prize. And sometimes it’s nothing more than a gracious gift from a friend or stranger – like the secret password that lets you into your neighbor’s tree house. Membership looks very different in many situations, but at the heart of it all is belonging.
Oak Ridge Presbyterian is a place of belonging for many people. Some of those people have become members through the formal membership process, some have not. If you’re in the latter camp, we invite you to consider participating in one of the upcoming classes. You can contact the church office for more information or to sign up for a class.
But, membership is about more than just a class. True, these classes are geared towards helping people learn about Oak Ridge Presbyterian, talk about their faith journey and feel like they belong. But what happens after that? What are the next steps to truly feeling like you belong at Oak Ridge Presbyterian? Well, that’s part of where our church officers and pastor come in, particularly those that oversee our Fellowship and Evangelism core ministry. We’re going to be putting some special effort into helping people truly feel like they belong. So, if you’d like some assistance, please contact the church office or Pastor Marti.
