Celebrating Membership Sunday

Variable. This is a service to honor the people who have recently become members of the congregation. Some congregations hold this service twice a year; others once. This service often invites those who have recently “signed the book” to come before the congregation with the minister or worship leader. The new members might share a responsive reading with the congregation or recite a bond of fellowship or covenant together. The focus on membership might be a small part of the overall worship service. Or, the theme of membership might pervade the entire service with the recognition of new members being a piece of that.
