Family matters at The Orchard and membership is one of the next steps to becoming family. Church membership is a way to describe the kind of relationship God calls believers to have with one another.
We offer two classes for those who are interested in learning more about taking their next step at The Orchard.
If you are interested in learning more about The Orchard, who we are, what we believe, and how we function, Starting Point is the class for you!

Starting Point is what it sounds like, a great first step for anyone! This 2-week group meets several times throughout the year on Sunday mornings. During Starting Point, you can meet people who are also looking for connection, get to know some Group leaders and staff, and get a feel for what it looks like to be family at The Orchard. At the end of each term, we will come alongside you to help determine your Next Step.

The next Starting Point will meet January 29 and February 5 at 11:00 AM.
If you are ready to take the next step to learn about what it means to be a member of the Orchard, Exploring Membership is the class for you!

Exploring Membership is a class that enables you to explore what we believe, how we function, and what membership means. You will have the opportunity to meet our pastors and staff, as well as ask any questions you may have about The Orchard.

When you are family, you are known and belong. The elders at The Orchard strive to know and shepherd members well. After attending Exploring Membership, you can choose to complete a Membership Application and then will be able to schedule a Pastoral Care Meeting to officially join The Orchard family.

The next Exploring Membership will be Sunday, January 29, 2023.

baptism

Through baptism, we share what God has done in our lives, and we commit to growing in our relationship with Jesus Christ. Baptism is intended only for those who have professed faith in Jesus Christ and can give sufficient testimony to the basics of Christian beliefs. We baptize by immersion because it is not only the original significance of the word but also best symbolizes the reality to which baptism points—our death and resurrection in Christ. 

“We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.” (Romans 6:4)

If you are ready to take the next step of faith with believer’s baptism, please complete a request for baptism and a staff member will be in contact with you about next steps. Baptism following salvation is a prerequisite for becoming a member at The Orchard.
