are delighted We are delighted that you have joined
our ministry. Having you and your family as a part of our church
family will be a blessing both for you and for us. In welcoming
you into the church, we are confirming that you share the vision
of Greater Community Temple to reach out to the world while ministering
to the needs of the Body of Christ here.
In order to strengthen your commitment to this
ministry, it is mandatory that you attend all sessions of the
New Members Orientation classes before you become actively involved
in any auxiliary. I believe that these classes will enable you
to be a more effective member of this local church, the Church
Of God In Christ, and the universal church. As you know, there
are many people who join church and only stay for a few weeks.
I do not want this to happen to you. Therefore, our classes will
take five weeks to complete and are designed so that you can learn
and gain a basic understanding of the structure, doctrine, organization
and government of our church. Upon completion of all classes,
you become eligible for graduation and auxiliary participation.
Please commit yourself to this process and avail yourself to the
many wonderful opportunities of worship here.
We’re glad you are with us, and we care
about you. If there is any way that we can be of service to you,
don’t hesitate to call the Membership Nurturing office at
901-527-9255 ext. 19. It is our prayer that God continues to richly
