If you have not yet been baptized as a believer by immersion, baptism is the next step to proceeding toward covenant membership.
The final step toward membership is to participate in a Covenant Affirmation during our weekend worship services. We welcome new members four times per year, and at these services, each person joining affirms the Church Covenant before the congregation and is officially received into membership at Bethlehem.
We list the names of potential new members prior to each Covenant Affirmation and ask that anyone with concerns about someone proceeding toward membership contact us as quickly as possible.
If you have questions about the membership process, please contact Andrea Tjarks (612-338-7653 x444).
