Help With Logo

We have this logo that you may have seen before.  I want to put it out there to see if some of you more graphically talented people could improve on it.  If you have a friend who is willing to help, invite them.

It will be used as we work on getting to know our neighbors.  It is based on the simple command that Jesus gave us to love our neighbors.  Send your image to me and I’ll let you choose the one you like best.

Love Your Neighbor Now

Membership

What it means to be a member differs depending on who you ask or where you’re from or how old you are.  Our denomination has clearly defined statements on membership, local polity and government, articles of faith, covenant of christian living … (http://nazarene.org/manuals).  But, like most things in life, until we answer questions for ourselves, they have no affect on our lives.

There was a slogan for a credit card years ago which went something like this:  “Membership has its privileges.”

When I think about church membership the slogan in my mind goes like this:  “Membership has its responsibilities.”

Here are some questions I would like to you to answer if you wanted to join our church:

  • What difference would being a member mean to me?
  • What are some things I would do differently than I do as a non-member?
  • Are there any responsibilities that I should consider that come with being a member?
  • How would me becoming a member benefit our local church?
  • What do I have to offer?
  • What am I willing to offer?
