Thanks for your interest in becoming an official member at Congregation Beth Messiah!
The New Members Class will be starting on January 28, 2017. Classes will be held on Shabbat mornings from 8:45-9:45am. This is a new curriculum and will include classes on Messianic Jewish identity and lifecycle. Classes are required for those seeking membership but are open to anyone that would like to participate.
We believe biblical membership should be meaningful, both for you and the synagogue, so this isn’t something we take lightly. As a member, you’re making three commitments.
- There’s a commitment to Messiah. You’re affirming that you are a disciple who is desiring to follow Yeshua, and you want to live out your walk with Messiah at CBM.
- You’re committed to the mission of Beth Messiah. You know our mission statement and you are playing an active part in leading people from where they are to where God wants them to be. This means you’re serving somewhere, caring for someone and financially supporting the synagogue with your tithes and offerings.
- You are committed to growing in your faith. No matter how long you’ve been a follower of Messiah, there are still steps you can take to grow. As a member, you’re acknowledging that you’re taking an active role in the discipleship process – through participation in a chavurah (aka, small group), by taking yeshivot, or by personal, spiritual disciplines.
