Sponsor a New Member

As new members join the congregation, we pair them with “Sponsors” who have been
members for a year or more.  In addition, typically new members participate in a 4 week new member’s class, referred to as Amazing Grace.  This is an opportunity for new members to meet other brothers and sisters in Christ, learn about the The Heart of Lutheran Teaching, Liturgy & Music: Form & Freedom, and Being Part of St. Paul’s.

Sponsors role:

• Attend as many of the four “Amazing Grace” classes as
they can with those they sponsor.  Classes are held during Sunday School  hour.

• Participate in two worship services, the Rite of Welcome and the Affirmation of
Baptism, at which new members they sponsor join the congregation.

• Introduce the new member to other members

• Meet/speak with the new member periodically, ie  Coffee Fellowship

• Invite new members to church events over the course of a year

• Get the new member involved in 1 group/area of service

• Continue maintaining the relationship after the new member joins

• Any questions or concerns can be directed to any member of the Welcome Team.

The Welcome Team coordinates three or more new member sessions each year.  If you are willing to serve in this vital ministry, please contact any member of the Welcome Team.
