Join Our Worshiping Community
Every one of us has the privilege of using our time, talent, and resources to the purpose they feel called. Members of a Christian church usually believe that we are called to use these resources for the betterment of humanity. In this way, the world makes progress toward the vision of Christ for the world. Those who have worshiped at Avenue Church NYC for a period may discern that they would like to join this movement with us here.
Prospective members participate in at least three classes with an Avenue Church NYC minister and likely others on a similar journey. We will discuss the basic theology and structure of the Presbyterian Church (USA), what is hoped for from our members and where your prayers and contemplation about your faith are calling you.
Meeting with Session
At the end of the Inquirers' Series, you may discern that you would like to become is to become a member of our particular congregation. During a special meeting of our church board, you will respond to questions about your faith and life and, if you so desire, become a member of our congregation with full voice and vote.
