Pastor Charla, our Senior Pastor, would love to receive you and your family into membership. As a place to begin, she likes to get some basic information. 
 
Anything you choose to share helps Pastor Charla prepare for the next step, a conversation. Generally, this conversation lasts 45 minutes to an hour. She asks about your story and what faith in Christ means to you. She answers any questions you have about Church of the Good Shepherd. Finally, she walks you through our five vows of membership: prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness. 
 
If you are ready to join at the end of this conversation, she’ll receive you into membership and set a date to introduce you to our congregation. Feel free to contact Pastor Charla if you need more information or want to ask a question.
