Church membership is a sacred relationship between a person, the congregation and God; we’re careful to offer support and guidance in a low-pressure way. We encourage you to come see what God is doing here, test your heart to see if He’s leading you to come back, “dip your toe” into the congregation, and then spend time in prayer regarding your involvement.
Crestview is a growing congregation, always eager to welcome new folks into this vibrant, warm and active church family. Typically, the path to membership looks something like this:
Check us out:
Attend a worship service (or a few) in person or online. Explore our website, FaceBook page and Beyond the Bulletin Friday e-newsletter. Between our worship and our communications, it won’t take long to get a feel for our multigenerational, warm, welcoming and sometimes a little goofy church family.
Each week when you worship, whether online or in person, we invite you to “check in” to let us know you are worshipping with us. If you have a prayer request, it can be made when you “check in” and our staff will be praying that week for you.
Continue to consider Crestview as your church home:
At any point if you would like to be contacted, let us know! Leave us your contact information and a request to be contacted when you check in, or by email, phone, FaceBook message or the form below. Pastor Shawn would be delighted to answer any questions you have about what we believe, Crestview’s mission and vision or church membership. Our Welcome Team would also enjoy the opportunity to follow up with you to talk shop, give you a tour of Crestview and discuss opportunities to meet more people and get involved, if you are interested.
We also welcome you to join any of the mission or study opportunities available. You don’t have to be a member to participate. Hop in and test the waters! Getting involved in an activity or group is another great way to determine if you want to make Crestview your church home.
Attend a Starting Point Luncheon:
Crestview offers a quarterly Starting Point Luncheon for guests who want to learn more about the congregation and explore the possibility of church membership. Call our office, watch the bulletin, website and/or weekly email newsletter for time/dates of the next luncheon. These luncheons are currently suspended during Covid, but tours and in person or online meetings to learn more are a great option during this time. We hope to restart Starting Point Luncheons in 2021.
What is Starting Point?
Starting Point is a great way to meet other guests who are new to the congregation, but isn’t a requirement for membership. The complimentary luncheon lasts about 90 minutes and includes a presentation by our pastor, followed by Q&A, and a tour of our facilities. We hope to resume luncheons in 2021.
Become a Member:
If you decide to become a Crestview member, you will meet the church Session(our governing board) on the Sunday morning before service to be welcomed formally as a member.
During that Sunday service, you will be introduced by Pastor Shawn and welcomed by the entire congregation during the service. It will be wonderful!
