In all biblical analogies for the church, it is implied that the relationship between a Christian and the church is to be one of unity, commitment, and love. Church membership is an important part of participating in the body of Christ at Holy Cross and therefore we give you a vision for this relationship and address a basic framework for living out God's mission as his brought-together people.
You'll hear about our mission to magnify God's glory, live as God's people, and engage in God's mission. And, better yet, you'll hear from leaders and members in our church on how to best demonstrate and live out this mission. Attending a membership class is required for membership, but participation in the class does not obligate you to join.

Membership Class Q&A:
Q: When is the next Membership Class?
A: Our membership class is 100% online and includes about 25 short online videos, totalling approximately 3 hours of online content. You can watch them at your own pace, following along with our workbook. The videos will be available on April 25, 2021.
Q: Where do I find these videos?
A: Our class is hosted through ServeHQ - an online training platform for churches. When you enroll in the class you will be sent a follow-up email with instructions on how to access the videos.
Q: Do I have to complete the class in a certain time limit?
A: Yes. The video content will be available during a 3-week window (April 25 - May 16).
Q: Do I have to complete the class in one sitting?
A: No, the online class platform will keep track of your progress. You can watch as little or as much as you want in each sitting, just be sure to complete the whole course within the three-week window.
Q: Are there materials needed for the class?
A: When you register, you will be given a workbook to follow along with the online videos. The workbook is a fill-in answer format which follows the training videos.
Q: Do I have to become a member if I complete the course?
A: Nope. We hope the class affirms your desire to become a member but completion of the course does not obligate you to join?
Q: I've been a member of another church prior to attending Holy Cross. Do I need to take this class if I want to become a member of Holy Cross?
A: Completing our membership class is required for all wishing to join. The goal of our class is to help you learn more about the specifics of what it means to be a part of Holy Cross Church. You'll learn new things in this class.
