Home: Conversations about Membership

Ormewood Church is a place where belonging matters. It's reflected in our values and our mission statement. In the life of a church, this belonging often gets formalized--like being in a relationship or a covenant. There are many reasons for this. People want to declare their belonging, they want to define their belonging, and they want to commit to a community of people. It also benefits the community, a lot! There is a sense of ownership and accountability with belonging, along with a shared covenant that the love we share is meaningful and mutual. Many churches call this whole idea "membership."

This April and May we are hosting small gatherings to explore some of the ways that we belong to each other and to God as we shape what it means to be a "member" here at Ormewood Church. These conversations will be the first, but not the last as we figure out what it means to call OC "home." Whether you are new or old hat, we want you at the table.
