New Member Event

We Welcome New Members

Join us at our next event: Saturday, October 28, 9:00 am-1:00 pm at Mill Run. Register below.

Why should I become a member?

Because Jesus “loved the Church and gave himself up for her” (Ephesians 5:25), we his followers want to return to him our devotion and commitment. One way is to join with a fellowship of other believers who are also following God.

How do I become a member?

Becoming a UALC member is a four step process:
  • New Member Event:  At this half-day event you’ll meet others who are joining the church. You’ll hear from some of the pastors and staff and get to ask questions. You’ll sit at tables in groups of 5-8, with a trained small group leader. Mid-way through the morning we’ll enjoy a brunch specially prepared for you. Childcare is available for age 5 and under.
  • New Member Next Steps Group:  The small group leaders from your table will lead you in your Next Steps Group. A week after the event, and for two Sunday evenings following, you’ll meet and experience small group together. The first Sunday meeting is a "small group preview," led by your group leader. Here you will set the dates, times and location for future meetings.
  • Membership:  The second Sunday will be the Reception of New Members. You'll have the opportunity to profess your faith publicly during a short afternoon or evening service. Your family and friends are invited to participate and support you as you commit to follow Jesus while living out our Mission: To Be and To Make Disciples of Jesus Christ. Refreshments will be served immediately following.
  • Small Group:  As you continue to meet with your small group, you’ll build new friendships and relationships which could last a lifetime. We know that real and intentional discipleship happens in a small group, and that is one way we live out our Mission. The New Member Event is a main entry point into a small group and your opportunity to connect on a deeper level as you join our community of believers.
