Celebrating New Members
Throughout the year (or sometimes just once a year), our congregations hold services to honor the newest members of the congregation. This celebration invites those who have recently “signed the book” to come before the congregation with the minister or worship leader. The new members might share a responsive reading with the congregation or recite a bond of fellowship or covenant together. The focus on membership might be a small part of the overall worship service, or the theme of membership might pervade the entire service.
