Membership is the pinnacle of connection and engagement at Harbor Cov. While you don’t have to be a member to participate in any of our ministries, membership:
- Communicates with other people in our church that you are for them and are willing to connect with them in meaningful ways
- Solidifies your own identity as a christian in the Harbor Cov family as someone who engages our mission to reach people for Christ, develop disciples, and live lives of compassion, mercy, and justice.
So how does the road to membership work? Well, think of it like a relationship… the first step starts with “a date.”
To get to know Harbor Covenant or the Evangelical Covenant Church, we have a “Next Steps” video for you to watch and a “Next Steps” meetup for you to attend. Just shoot us an email expressing interest and we’ll send you a link to the video. After you watch the video we’ll reach out to you and schedule a date to meet with you in person or over zoom on a Sunday after a worship service. You can ask any questions you have and get to know one of our pastors.
After you’ve been around Harbor Covenant for a while and you’re pretty sure that God is calling you to make Harbor Covenant home, then it’s time for Diving In! Diving In will give you a comprehensive look at who Harbor Covenant is and where we are going. it is also a prerequisite for the membership class. Contact the church office for the next available Diving In Class.
Finally, after taking the Diving In class, if you’re ready to become an official member of Harbor Cov, we invite you to fill out an application and sit down for an interview with our members of the leadership team. It’s nothing scary, we just want to hear your story and get to know you. After you meet with the LT then we celebrate your commitment and the congregation welcomes you into membership at a weekend service. Email the church office to see when the next membership class is scheduled.
