Foundations Course

Membership at Park Church

Welcome to our home page for our membership process, lovingly referred to as "Foundations." The Foundations Course has three simple elements to introduce, but first, why do we encourage church membership in the first place?

Church Membership: A Brief Overview

Through the broken body and shed blood of Jesus, those who trust in Him are ushered into covenant relationship with the Triune God and with the spiritual family He has created. This is the Church.

While it is true that every Christian is inseparably united to Jesus and His people by the work of Jesus alone, to practically experience and actively live in this reality, we must commit to a local expression of this universal family of God—a local church. If you're ready to consider local church membership and Park Church is the place, this course is for you.

Foundations Course: Three Elements

1. Family Meal

You’ll start by sharing a meal with others in the home of an elder or staff member—you'll choose your time and location when you RSVP. Although this time is simple and low-agenda, we view it as wonderfully helpful in this membership process. Being a family starts around a table where we're an open book and eager to get to know you.

2. Class-and-Discussion Sessions

Next, we'll gather on Sunday, October 23, Sunday, October 30, and Sunday, November 6, all from 12:30-2:30pm (meals and childcare are provided). We ask that you plan to attend at least two of the three Sunday gatherings. In these sessions, we get into a lot of detail on our story, our vision, our theology, our leadership, and more.

3. Ministry Videos

In between your Family Meal and Class-and-Discussion sessions as mentioned above, you'll work through some videos from our leadership team to get to know our ministries and staff. These eleven videos are roughly 10 minutes long each. There is no quiz or follow-up—these are for you to familiarize yourself with some of the ins and outs of your church as you see fit. You'll always be able to come back to these videos on this page.

RSVP for Foundations

An RSVP for the course does not commit you to becoming a Covenant Member of Park Church. In fact, if you're trying to make a decision about membership here, the Foundations Course is a great way to get the whole picture as you prayerfully decide. If you don't choose this Spring 2022 Foundations Course, your next opportunity will be this Fall.
