Membership

 

In order to be a member at Lake Osborne you must be believe that Jesus Christ is the Promised Savior who has come to make you right with God.  You must have placed your faith in him, and in him alone, for salvation.

Since no two churches are exactly alike we also ask those interested in learning more about Lake Osborne or in joining the church to attend two events that are specifically designed to answer many of the questions you might have about us.

 

Taste of Lake Osborne

This is an opportunity for you to learn about LOPC.  What do we believe? What is our Philosophy of Ministry? Where is the church heading? These are the kinds of questions that Taste of Lake Osborne is designed to answer.  We know that joining a church is a big deal, we want to make sure you know who we are before you make the decision to join.

Even if you are not 100% sure about church membership yet Taste of Lake Osborne is a great way to get to know more about the church.

 

Membership Seminar

In the Membership Seminar we answer three questions:

  • What is Christianity?
  • What is a Presbyterian?
  • What is Church Membership?

We believe that these three questions will help to round our your understudying of what we believe and do.

 

What Happens Next?

Once you have attended both Taste of Lake Osborne and the Membership Seminar you can submit your application for membership to the elders of the church, known as the session.  The elders will review your application and then schedule a opportunity for an interview.  After the interview the two elders who interviewed you will present you application to the rest of the session.  Once the elders decide to allow you to join the church you will be invited to stand before the congregation to take the membership vows
