THE PROCESS FROM HERE...
After you attend the membership class and complete this form, we will set up an interview with you and two Elders. It's an opportunity for you to get to know them and they you, and for you to ask questions. When couples are becoming members together, the Elders usually meet with you both at the same time. After a successful interview, your name is published in the bulletin for 2 weeks, for approval by the current members. If no concerns are raised, you will receive a letter welcoming you as a member of the church.
