Why become a member?
Membership at Beautiful Savior means a deeper level of involvement and commitment to Connecting People to the Savior. Members are the only ones who: vote in our voters meetings/elections, serve in various leadership positions, have weddings at Beautiful Savior, and receive congregational mailing.
How do I become a member at Beautiful Savior?
There are two ways people become members at Beautiful Savior, depending upon their past church backgrounds: Transfers and Discovery Class. Transfers are for those who have prior membership at another LCMS (Lutheran Church Missouri Synod) congregation. New Member Class is for those who do have not have an LCMS background.
How do I go about transferring?
Transfers from other Lutheran congregations will need to set up a meeting so you get a chance to ask any specific questions about our church, necessary paperwork can be completed, and we get a chance to get to know you outside of a worship service! Please contact the church office (331-7376) to schedule a meeting time.
You will also be required to attend one of the four New Member Orientation Meetings that are offered throughout the year, and transfer meetings are to be done prior to the orientation.
What is Equip: Discovery?
Discovery class is designed to be the first point of connection for those considering Beautiful Savior as their church home, for a season or for a lifetime. It also serves as the overview of the foundation from which our belief and community flows. This eight week class includes an overview of our church and our values, with an explanation of the Bible, God, Creation, Sin, Salvation and more. This class explores basic Christian teachings and how it is lived within us as a church as we seek to honor Jesus and love our neighbors.
Discovery classes will be offered throughout the year (See Calendar below) (Register for a class)
For those going on to membership, you will be required to attend one of the New Member Orientation Meetings that are offered throughout the year.
* Nursery care for children ages 3 and under is provided on Sunday mornings only.
What is the New Member Orientation?
It is a two hour seminar that will inform what it means to be a member of Beautiful Savior. You will be challenged to grow in your faith through various Bible studies and small groups, and we’ll familiarize you with the numerous opportunities for you to utilize your God given gifts in service and ministry. There are four Orientations throughout the year that meet at the La Vista site. (See Calendar below)
