Become a Member

Membership at Prairie Lakes is more than your name on a membership roster or attending church meetings. Members are called to a higher degree of responsibility, service and even sacrifice. By becoming a member, you become part of a family, a “spiritual” family who will provide support and encouragement in your walk with Christ. It is moving beyond attending on the weekends to joining us in creating and leading our various ministries.

Once you have acknowledged that Jesus Christ is Lord, baptism by immersion is the tangible way of showing that you trust God for your salvation. In lieu of infant/child baptism, we offer a special, quarterly child dedication ceremony.

Tell Your Story

Everyone has a faith story, a time in their life when they realized they couldn’t do it alone and took that first step and asked Jesus to lead their lives. Tell your story to an examining committee of two of the following: a current Elder, a Campus Pastor or Director, a Board-approved former Elder, or a Board-approved Chaplain.
