Who We Are . . .

Belonging

This class will be offered again in the fall

Hosts:  Lynn White, Mike Westerveld, and other Christ Memorial staff

Belonging: Have you ever found yourself in a crowd of people you don’t know, in a new place you are unfamiliar with, and wondering if you belong? At “Belonging,” we'll gather around a table, let you know a little more about us, and invite you to share how you found yourself here at Christ Memorial. You will meet other people, some of the staff, and have time to ask questions. If we succeed, you will leave feeling a little bit more like you belong. Congratulations! You have taken the first step. ​​For more information on Belonging or to sign up for this class, contact Lynn at lynnw@christmemorial.org or 796-3362.

Believing

Believing:  This gathering is designed to help you understand the core set of beliefs at Christ Memorial, as well as share with you the standards of the Reformed Church in America. While we do not have to agree on everything as a group, we want you to know where we stand on humanity, sin, God, Jesus, and salvation. Don’t worry, we will have plenty of time to ask questions. Step two is behind you.  For more information on Believing or to sign up for this class, contact Lynn at lynnw@christmemorial.org or 796-3362.

 

Becoming

This class will be offered again in the fall

Hosts:  Lynn White, Mike Westerveld, and other Christ Memorial staff

​​

Becoming: A seed that becomes a plant draws nutrients from the soil, air, and water. So, too, our process of "becoming" involves the people and environment around us. This gathering is the final step in becoming a member of Christ Memorial Church. We will share our stories of God at work in our lives, be introduced to ministries and tools for us to discover and utilize our gifts, and we will make a commitment to love, encourage, and support one another. If you want them, we will provide you with offering envelopes.  For more information on Becoming or to sign up for this class, contact Lynn at lynnw@christmemorial.org or 796-3362.
