Ready to join the Waterdam community?
We invite you to follow our path to membership below.
Attend a Membership Class
The best way to grow is to get connected with God’s people. At our Welcome to Waterdam membership class you’ll discover more about our mission, vision, and values. Anyone interested in learning more about Waterdam Church and the EFCA or in becoming a member of Waterdam Church should attend. This five week class meets on Sunday mornings. If you decide to move forward with membership, you’ll have an opportunity to share your written testimony and sign our membership covenant.
Next class: Contact church office for date of next class
Individuals interested in applying for Waterdam Church Membership must complete this class prior to application. However, attendance at the Welcome Class does not require that you become a member if you are not ready to do so. If you would simply like more information about our church and/or the EFCA, please feel free to register and attend.
Find your place to serve
We believe that each believer has received a special gift and should employ it in serving others, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. Spiritual giftedness and maturity determines where and how a believer serves. (1 Peter 4:10)
Join A Small Group
One of the ways we live out this discipleship is through our Small Groups. Small Groups are becoming an essential part of the community of Waterdam Church. While many in our congregation attend Sunday School or specialized ministry, Small Groups involve everyone in the church and have an even broader purpose. Many people today do not feel connected or a part of the body and need to be shown a clear path to be involved at Waterdam as well as to develop friends with believers. Plugging into a Small Group will play a critical role in helping you begin developing relationships with your brothers and sisters in Christ.
In a world of loneliness, pain and daily challenges, life can be extremely hard. The good news is we were never meant to carry life’s burdens or even celebrate its joys alone. God gave us community. There is a small group for all ages and stages of life. In small community groups of caring people, participants share and disciple each other toward spiritual growth. One can experience both the benefits of the larger gatherings of church and yet enjoy the kind of fellowship that only develops in small, safe settings. (Hebrews 10:24-25) Belonging to our community requires a commitment to being intentionally involved with others in accountable, encouraging relationships. We believe true transformation happens best in the context of relationships. We carry and support each other’s burdens as we point each other to our Savior Jesus. However, healing that Jesus brings is meant to be shared and not confined to small groups.
