Membership at West Side means joining a community of believers, a group of people who together are striving to serve God, love others, understand the Bible, and have a meaningful spiritual relationship with God, with one another, and with the world.
New Member Classes
New member classes are held on a regularly during the year, as there is interest; they are led by Dr. Icenogle. Topics covered in the class include what it means to be a Presbyterian; how the church is organized and administered; what the requirements of membership are; and an overview of West Side's many areas of concern, such as Mission, Worship and Music, Christian Formation and Children's Ministries. Attendance at one class is all that is required prior to joining the congregation, but participation is not a commitment to join the church. Childcare during a class is available upon request.
Following completion of the class, and reception by the Session (West Side's Church Council), new members are formally welcomed in worship on a Sunday convenient for the family.
