What is The Discovery Course?

Discovery provides an opportunity to meet the pastors and others new to the church and ask questions about God, faith or the church. It also represents the first step in our membership process, but many take Discovery simply to learn more about the church. This year we will offer Discovery twice a year, as single afternoon sessions from 12:15-4:30pm at our Andover campus, including lunch.

Who is Discovery for?

Anyone can come to Discovery, but it is particularly designed for people who are interested in joining the church. Coming to Discovery, does not commit you to joining and you are welcome to come simply to find out more about the church and its mission.

How does Discovery fit into the Membership Process?

Step One: Participate in Discovery

Step Two: Complete a membership application (which you can do during Discovery)

Step Three: Meet with the elders

Step Four: Join the Church by making a public commitment of membership, during a Sunday service
