Don't worry! Gone are the days of old membership classes where you spend an "exciting" afternoon learning about the church history and "fascinating" by-laws (cringe). We promise you a different experience!
So what happens at this class?
Well, first we want to just get to know you. We like stories and if you're comfortable with it, we'd like to hear yours. We also offer you the opportunity to take a pretty extensive spiritual gifts test which also covers personality types. We walk you through the results and then talk about some of the practical ways this affects relationships. Though we do give you a brief background on Foursquare church, the purpose is not so much a history lesson as it is an opportunity to discuss what we believe in and give you a chance to ask questions- yes, even those difficult ones you’ve always wished you could ask! We also have several of the pastors share their own stories and again give you a chance to ask questions. All of this is nicely spread out over a 4 week period, which gives us the time to connect with you and establish a relationship. And lastly, of course, there's food involved.
Come--we look forward to meeting you! If you’re interested, please check out our upcoming class times below.
