1970. It is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in
America. Today's membership is a rich mix of individuals and
families, longtime and newer members, joined together to grow in faith
and serve in Christ's name. Members of all ages take part in
worship, learning, outreach, service, hospitality, friendship-building
events and programs in youth and family ministry. New member
groups form at least twice a year, but whether or not you are seeking a
church home, your visit or call is welcome.

Becoming a Member:
New members are received at Family of God on a New
Member Sunday, typically either in spring or fall. Your
participation in a series of Sunday noon get-acquainted sessions is part
of the preparation for membership. This is a chance for some current
members and staff to meet you and for you to meet them and others
joining the congregation in an informative and relaxed session.
Individuals or families are also welcome to meet separately with the
pastor or another staff member about any matters of faith or church
involvement. We celebrate new members joining the Body of Christ
in this place. We also celebrate the presence of friends of the
congregation and visitors not ready for the step of membership.
