Understanding NewSong and where we're headed
We are excited to be offering two New Member Class Sessions this year at NewSong. Our next New Member Session begins October 14th. Each session will be broken down into three class gatherings: 101, 102, and 103 - all offered during the 10:30 Worship Experience time.
We encourage everyone to worship at the 9 a.m. worship hour and participate in the New Member Class during the 10:30 hour. Since we have childcare available on Sundays, we encourage you to be blessed by this availability.
These classes are for not just for those wanting to become a member of the NewSong community. If you are already a member of NewSong, but just want a refresher course on the beliefs and expectations of the NewSong community, you are invited.
New Member classes will be offered during the second worship experience from 10:30-12.
Session 101: 10:30am, Sunday, August 12
Session 102: 10:30am, Sunday, August 19
Session 103: 10:30am, Sunday, August 26
Session 101: 10:30am, Sunday, October 14
Session 102: 10:30am, Sunday, October 21
Session 103: 10:30am, Sunday, October 28
We will meet each week in the lead pastor's office. Scott's office is located downstairs, at the end of the hallway to your left as you enter the back glass doors.
During the 3 classes, we will cover topics from understanding a relationship with Jesus to expectations of a member at NewSong.
An example of topics are:
1. Getting to Know One Another
This will be a time to not only get to know the other members of your class, but most importantly, to introduce yourself and let us get to know you a little too.
2. Who’s Who
From NewSong Ministry Staff to Congregation Leadership, we want you to know who’s who here at NewSong.
3. Church History
A church history is often a fascinating story to tell and NewSong is no exception. From the first service until now, we will take a closer look at how we have gotten to where we are today.
4. Mission, Vision and Values
We will try to help you understand why NewSong exists (mission), what we are trying to accomplish (vision) and the values or principles that guide our behaviors and decision making process.
This reiteration provides an opportunity for class participants to understand what the church is trying to achieve and further understand church priorities.
5. Statement of Faith
We will discuss NewSong’s core beliefs and corresponding scripture that supports our faith.
6. What the Church Expects From Members
This discussion is intended to help you understand the concepts of spiritual development, giving, serving and participation in NewSong events and programs.
7. What Members Can Expect From The Church
We will take time to explain how NewSong can support members and how to access that support. We will also discuss how NewSong shares information with its members and further discuss our communication process to make sure you can stay in the know.
We will try to answer frequently asked questions, but allow space for everyone to ask anything we may have missed.
9. Volunteer Opportunities
We will spend time explaining the different volunteer roles and have an opportunity for you to sign up and discuss your gifts and interests to help you discover what role my be best for you.
