The New Member’s Class is a great opportunity for those new to our community to meet new people and learn more about our congregation. You may join GBPC by transfer of letter, by reaffirmation of faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, or by profession of faith and baptism. The class is the pathway for adults (ages 18 and above) to join GBPC. We encourage both those who have been members of Presbyterian churches and those coming from different backgrounds to attend.
The New Member’s class is offered three times a year (Winter, Spring, Fall). It consists of an overview of the Reformed tradition and beliefs given by the pastor. You will also be given the two books that make up our constitution, the Book of Order and Book of Confessions. Additionally, you will be introduced to many of the staff and ministry leaders of Great Bridge Presbyterian Church. You will be given an opportunity during the class to share your own faith story, and if you choose to join, will be asked five membership questions.
Join the pastor to hear their testimony and learn about the key emphases of the Presbyterian tradition and how that impacts what we’re doing at GBPC. Learn how you can plug into the right place at GPBC! Enjoy lunch with staff and ministry leaders, and meet with elders to share your faith story and join GBPC. Childcare provided.
