An ideal message to give to members who have been attending, but who have not yet expressed their intention to be considered part of the congregation. Gives scriptural precedent for placing membership and practical suggestions for getting involved in the local work.
Elders find this tract especially helpful in showing the need for arriving Christians to identify with the local congregation and get involved in the work. Includes scriptural references showing that the early disciples essentially “placed membership” and submitted to the local eldership, rather than roaming from congregation to congregation, remaining on the fringe, or trying to be a “member at large.” Also includes practical suggestions for how to go about placing membership and for getting involved in the congregation.
“A great tool when members move into our area.”
