Membership at Prairie Lakes Church is a confirmation of being part of a No Matter Church and a commitment to living as a No Matter Follower of Jesus. If you've stepped over the Faith Line, been baptized, and are engaged at Prairie Lakes Church, Membership is the next step in your walk with God!
Members of Prairie Lakes Church are followers of Jesus who are actively seeking ways to reorient their lives around making disciples in their Little Iowa. While Membership allows you to vote on the church budget, property purchases, Elder nominations, and hiring of a Senior Pastor, its primary focus is an active pursuit of Jesus' command for us to love God, love our neighbor, and go and make disciples.
We are on a mission to be a No Matter Church. We have a vision to Reach Iowa. But what does that mean for you?
Join us for our two-part Membership experience and find out.
Together, we'll share our experiences, discuss, and discover how God has uniquely called us to participate in his work.
Session 1:Learn about what being a part of a No Matter Church means as a disciple maker and how it shapes our culture and ministry initiatives. Session 2:Learn about what it means to be a No Matter Follower of Jesus and the values of a disciple making life.
After participating in the Membership experience and affirming a desire to live as a No Matter Follower as part of a No Matter Church, Member candidates are voted in by the Elder Board. Then, new Members are celebrated and commissioned - sent out - during a weekend service.
